Eyam, Coombs Dale and Stoney Middleton
This is a free sample walk but you need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details. Join or log in above if you are already a member.
The walk is to the south of Eyam and it begins by using disused quarry tracks almost as far as Stoney Middleton. These have been extensively replanted with trees and have an abundance of flowers and butterflies in summer. From there it climbs through meadows but the terrain is firm throughout. Towards the end of the walk the Boundary Stone is passed, still with the six holes in which money was placed during the plague of 1665 in payment for food and medicines. On the outskirts of the village are the graves of some of the villagers.
