This site takes you on a walk around Victorian Ilkeston, with Adeline Wells as guide, and myself as provider of supplementary history.
In the 1930’s Adeline wrote a series of letters to the Ilkeston Advertiser, describing her life in the town as a child and these help us navigate our route around the area and introduce us to its main characters.
Any contributions and comments are all very welcome.
If you have any questions about your own Ilkeston research please put them forward.
