SNAPSHOT! Eyam, September Sheep Roast.

I was out and about in Derbyshire and after a brief food stop in Bakewell I headed up to the plague village of Eyam. In an echo of things to come they isolated themselves after an outbreak of the Black Death was brought into the town in a flea infested roll of cloth brought up from London.

Of happier note they have an annual celebration inspired by the Festival of Britain and they use the marvelous contraption at the head of this post to roast a sheep. Must check my diary, see if the event will feature this year.

The here and there of Eyam.
A pleasant corner to enjoy the evening.
