About this image
Abbey Street was a dead-end road largely comprising terraced houses on the north side of Ilkeston, running westwards off Lower Bloomsgrove Road. This views shows the rear of Nos 15-10, which were on the north side at the eastern end. Lower Bloomsgrove Road is in the foreground and the photographer appears to have used one of the structures at Ilkeston Gasworks as a vantage point. All the houses in Abbey Street have since been demolished leaving the road today devoid of habitation. View looking south-west.
