Eyam Hall, a small manor house built in the late 17th century in the heart of a village recovering from a terrible outbreak of bubonic plague, is the much-loved home of an ancient Derbyshire family. The Wrights, prosperous merchants and land-owners, constructed their grand new home in Eyam, a village struggling after the tragic events of 1665 and 1666, when the plague took hold. The Hall and its estate brought hope and employment to Eyam, while generations of Wrights made it a comfortable and beautiful family home, always at the center of village life. This beautiful, fully illustrated book tells the story of the Wright family and its home, while also exploring the tragic events surrounding the plague years and the legacy these have had on the village of Eyam.
