The Plague Cottages in Eyam, England
The plague cottages in the village of Eyam, Derbyshire, are still in use some 400 years later. I have visited the village several times, and never fail to be inspired by Reverend Mompesson, and the elders of the church who literally sacrificed themselves as they tried to contain the "Seeds of Doom."
Within the pages of Forbidden, (historical fiction) I have peppered the whole book with actual historical events such as the Washington and Sherman families, and also the village of Eyam.
