Village Page

West Hallam is a substantial village between Derby and Ilkeston within 5 miles of the Nottinghamshire border, Erewash Valley rail line and M1 Motorway. The earliest known reference to the village is in the Domesday Book of 1086 although the village was well established by that time.

The village centre is a Conservation Area dominated by the parish church dedicated to St Wilfrid dating back to 1275 which is currently normally open for viewing on Tuesday and Thursday. It was probably built by the de Cromwell family who held the Manor of West Hallam for nearly 300 years; they lived in the moated Manor House which stood in Foxhole plantation near the Storage Depot. Although this is a scheduled Historic Monument it is not open to the public.
