    Riley Graves

    These graves are on a hillside in a field between Eyam and the village of Grindleford, near to Riley Farm. Its quite a trek up a steepish country lane out of the village to reach these graves.

    This photo is of my son Joe and our dog Ted, at the edge of the field.

    Chatsworth House

    Whilst visiting Eyam why not drive a little further on maybe 5 miles to see the village of Edensor and the stately home of Chatsworth the home of the Dukes of Devonshire with sprawling landscapes, beautiful scenery and a lovely area for walking.

    For more information on Edensor and Chatsworth please see my Edensor page.

    Mrs Hancock survived and later went to live with her only surviving son in Sheffield. Howdevasting it must have been for her.

    These graves are now owned by the National Trust.
