About this image
Park Farm, also known as The Park and Ilkeston Park. In 1963 the derelict farm was swept by fire. 200 houses were planned for the site. Ilkeston and District Local History Society newsletter vol.1 p15 speculates on the possible connection between Park Farm and Dale Abbey ('Architectural evidence'). Park Farm was the sometime home of the Potter family and latterly occupied by Ilkeston Co-operative Society. This view was taken looking west towards Park Cemetery and shows the Cemetery Chapel (with spire, left) and the Central Methodist Church (spire to the right).
