Take the Hathersage and Castelton road out of the city and over the moor.  At the Fox House inn, take care as the road makes a sharp right turn, then immediately after the pub, turn left down to Grindleford.  At the bottom of the hill, cross the bridge, and follow the road through the village until you reach the crossroads at Calver.  Turn right here, through Stoney Middleton, and then look out for signs to Eyam on the right. As you come into the village, take the first left turn and head past the church to find the car park.
