S3E30 – The Plague Village of Eyam with Ross Brierley

The Plague Village of Eyam

The award winning Ross Brierley (of The Not So Late Show) takes the Loremen on a (virtual) tour of the village of Eyam. Fans of nominative determinism will be both pleased and annoyed by this tale, like someone whose name was Jolly Upset. This Derbyshire tragedy features ghosts, noble sacrifices and 1 (one) magical pudding-boy. No explanation needed or given.

(To the listeners writing in about our lax scoring: you win all right… or do you?)


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft. Featuring Guest Loreperson Ross Brierley.
