Between the village of Stoney Middleton, a town known for its stone houses, and Eyam you can find another remarkable stone. It's a Boundary Stone. In the 17th century, this stone was the boundary between the outside world and Eyam, between life and death for four months. The village of Eyam had voluntarily opted for a lockdown. Food was deposited here during the self-imposed lockdown. In the six large holes in the top of the boulder, the residents of Eyam put the money, which had been cleaned with vinegar. People thought it would be antiseptic.
