Old Ilson Blog by ‘Insider’

This is a regular blog of events — some significant, many mundane — written by our own restless native, ‘Insider’, who knows everything there is to know about Ilkeston life. At least that is what he claims, to anyone who will listen — though most listeners tend to fall asleep as he talks.

The blog begins on New Year’s Day of 1851.
