Eyam is the Peak District village which famously shut itself off in1665 following an outbreak of bubonic plague. Eyam Hall was built only few years after the village was declared plague free. Now leased to the National Trust, the Hall is open to the public. When I visited at the end of the summer, the gardens were being maintained by two volunteers. These ladies, very generously, allowed me to take some seed-heads from a large patch of Honesty plants growing near the rear of the Hall.
