EREWASH MP Jessica Lee was one of the interested local residents given a rare look inside the historic chapels at Ilkeston Park Cemetery on Saturday.

The Grade Two listed chapels date back to 1910 and are rarely accessible to the public.

But a team of hard-working volunteers made sure they were shipshape for the special open day organised by Erewash Borough Council.
