    We venture into the Peak District to a charming village called Eyam (pronounced 'Eem'). It is known as the 'Plague Village' as it has a unique story associated with the Black Death in 1665, which you can learn about at the museum in the town. Its dark history aside, it is a very pretty village with a craft centre, sculpture garden and market hall.

    We also call at Castleton, a picturesque village in the White Peak at the head of the Hope Valley. Founded in 1086 after the building of Peveril Castle, and built by the son of William the Conqueror, Castleton is steeped in history and is the quintessential classic English hamlet.
