The Grand Tour

A walk around Mid-Victorian Ilkeston, based on the recollections of Adeline Wells (1854-1944).

This part of the site takes you on a walk around Victorian Ilkeston, with Adeline Wells as guide. 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.

Edited and extended by Dave Johnson.
