David Bell's ever popular talk is played for laughs with no apology made for his tongue - in - cheek approach  to what on the  face of it is a tragic story. He is a passionate ambassador  for the village of  Eyam and  its historical heritage;   but also a pragmatist. "I have read an awful lot of books over the  years about the Eyam Plague and I want to  believe every single word I read !" 

 

"I am however drawn time and time again" added David, "to a persuasive report penned by The London  School of Economics about how well facts pass from generation to generation."

 

"Frankly, through the mists of time, the legend  of 17th century Eyam  has somewhat swamped the limited  primary historical evidence. But  don't let that spoil  or influence any future visit you plan to make to our wonderful little village and the tale it has to tell. . . .  "It certainly won't stop you having a good laugh with the Plague Doctor.
