Ilkeston - Christmas Lights
w/e 04 December 2022

All of this week's pictures were taken with a Nikon D3300



Ilkeston's Christmas lights were switched on at an event on Friday 25th November at 7pm which wasn't very good timing for football fans as that's when the England against the USA match kicked off in the World Cup game. I opted to watch the football but I think there was much excitement on the Market Place! Nevertheless we did take a walk through the town one day last week and here are some of the images.

Three Horse Shoes

If reindeer, like horses, wear shoes they might have to change the name of this pub at the top of Derby Road as one has landed with Santa's sleigh on the bay window.

Spanish Bar

Around the corner on South Street the Spanish Bar is looking very festive with three Christmas trees and dozens of lights across its frontage.

The rest of South Street too is illuminated with blue and white lights strung across the road.

Town Hall

Across the Market Place, more lights are strung across Wharncliffe Road and the "Seasons Greetings" sign shines down from the Town Hall.

We continued across the Lower Market Place to its junction with Bath Street (left) and East Street (right).

Bath Street Top

And then we carried on down Bath Street under the lights that criss-crossed from one side to the other.

Bath Street Bottom

At the bottom of Bath Street we turned and looked back up the hill - and then caught a bus back home.
