One of the most popular attractions in the most infamously historic village in the Peak District will be opening its doors to visitors every weekend in November.

It was back in 1672, just seven years after the bubonic plague ravaged Eyam, that John and Elizabeth Wright first moved into their new house at Eyam Hall. And it is still going strong in its 344th year of welcoming new faces and friends.

The hall, and associated craft centre, is now looked after by the National Trust, who are keeping it alive in the 21st century. There will be something for everyone next month, whether you’re looking for an autumnal day out, a base for a bracing walk, a stroll through the walled gardens or unique, hand-made gifts.

Visitor operations manager Jenny Aldridge said: “We are delighted be opening the hall and gardens again. We can’t wait to welcome visitors to this atmospheric place.”
