Experts have completed their work to restore the historic ceiling of the council chamber in Ilkeston Town Hall.

The project took two months and involved specialist research into the original paint scheme and decoration.

Work started when the chamber’s suspended ceiling was removed for repairs, revealing clues to how the original high ceiling looked.
