    Eyam is a small village in Derbyshire, England. The village is best known for being the "plague village" that chose to isolate itself when the plague was discovered there in August 1665, rather than let the infection spread. The village was founded and named by Anglo-Saxons, although lead had been mined in the area by the Romans.

    The mines & Plague village was not my area of interest (for now). This was an airborne infiltration.

    There is a stone grinding plant nearby, that was worth an explore. It was founded in 1940, & its principal occupation is to crush & grind fluorspar. They are still in business today crushing & griding a wide range of stones.

    Aerial recconnaisance.

    More of the recon mission...

    Airbrone infiltration...

    Incoming !!

    The main gate.

    Grit and rust everywhere

    Not much to see in here, just bag of... umm... grit.

This urban explore was the sole responsibility of the person involved, and has absolutely nothing to do what so ever with any local flying club or national association. This was carried out without their consent & does not fall into their rules, regulations or guidelines. All launches & landings were carried out in the correct field(s) as agreed with the (farmer) landowner: No landings were done within the plant grounds.
