Ilam lies 4 miles north west of Ashbourne off the A52 in the Derbyshire Peak District.

Ilam was inhabited in Saxon times and the church still displays some Saxon stonework as well as the tomb of the Saxon saint, Bertram. Now a model village of great charm, Ilam was originally an important settlement belonging to Burton Abbey. Jesse Watts Russell, a wealthy industrialist, moved the village from its position near Ilam Hall and rebuilt it in its current location in “Alpine style”. This explains both the unusual style of the buildings and the surprising distance between them and the village church.

The cross in the village was erected in 1840 in memory of a Mrs Watts Russell whose family had lived in the hall for generations.
