Outside the Maynard Arms at Grindleford.

Outside the Maynard Arms at Grindleford. This is at the top of the lane that leads up from the railway station. It is still a fair walk to Grindleford village but only a minute or so on the bus. Grindleford lays in the valley of the river Derwent which gets other mentions in the last bus stop. Grindleford station gets a mention in my

Stoney Middleton.

Passing through Stoney Middleton this is an impressive villiage that lays at the bottom of a deep limestone gorge.It is well known to potholers.

 Plauge Cottage Eyam.

After leaving Stoney Middleton the bus turns up Eyam Dale and goes into the village of Eyam. Eyam is famous for an outbreak of the great plauge in the 1600's. While the plauge was raging in London a salesman traveled from London to Eyam which would have been a very long journey in those days. Unbeknown to him he was also carrying the plauge. When the plauge broke out the people of Eyam realised if they left the villiage they would infect surrounding villiages and thus quarantined themselves to Eyam. People from the surrounding villages left them food to collect. The disease wiped out many of the people of Eyam but due to thier corageous efforts the disease spread no further. This is a shot of Plauge Cottage where ths Plauge first broke out in Eyam taken from the window of the 65 bus.
