Our day started with a fantastically filling breakfast! We were delighted to have such a great feast to fill us up before our busy day. We left the YHA at 9.15am and headed down the hill to look at the land use around Eyam village and listen to an informative talk in St Lawrence’s Church. After that, we looked at the Bull ring and Catherine Mompesson’s grave amongst other interesting places in the village. Mr Fernandes took us to Cucklet Delph and we learnt more about how the villagers of Eyam worshipped in the open air during the time of the plague.
We met for lunch in the park and enjoyed playing together. After that, we visited Eyam museum and went on to make a memories mug in the village hall. Our adventures ended at Swallet waterfall where Louis, unfortunately, left his boots (stuck in the mud)!

Our wonderful residential in Eyam has begun! Today we started by a jolly walk to Magpie mine. Magpie mine was very enjoyable because we got to listen to stories, although the walks were VERY TIRING!!! We had a lot of fun there looking down old mines and we're sure the next group will enjoy it. Currently, we are at the youth hostel and the rooms are in fact very nice to sleep in! The food there is absolutely yummy: spaghetii bolognaise,sausage beans and chips, jacket potato or chilli con con! Just before dinner, we had LOADS of fun at the park nearby!We had certainly worked an appetite up! We're playing games and we'll be going to bed soon to start a new, amazing day in Eyam!
