1986 TOURISM.

 It was decided to do a survey of

 didn't have any influence but the     
 weather did.It appeared that more     
 people came in the middle of the day  
 than early morning or late

     2 Where have you come from?       
     3 What type of transport have     
 you used?                             
     4 Is this your first visit?       
     5 Would you like to live in Eyam?
