Plague and Plagued by Motorists

You get a lot of description here, in particular of the Black Plague as it struck this part of Derbyshire in the week 3 August to the 10 August 1666.  You can just imagine the feelings of the inhabitants as it crept across the land and invaded almost every house.  The Hancocke family lost seven out of eight members of the family all within the space of one week.  Terror certainly stalked the land.  Charlie’s page conveys the horror in more detail.  Apart from the above, Tom and Charlie had a cracking day !
