Information

Details

Ilkeston is situated in the Erewash Valley in Derbyshire near the border of neighbouring Nottinghamshire. Until recently Ilkeston was a coal mining area with numerous pits. Iron production has also played an important part in the prosperity of this midlands town, due to the Stanton and Staveley Iron Works. Now, however a large proportion of people work in the textile industry, especially upholstery and lingerie manufacture. Although mostly an Industrial area, Ilkeston is surrounded by beautiful countryside and has also played an important part in the writings of D. H. Lawrence.
