March to Drum Head Service in Eastwood

The parade before the annual Drum Head Service in times gone by is captured in this photo taking centre stage in this week’s Memory Lane.

The march down Mansfield Road in Eastwood was followed by the service on the field of Hall Park.

The Miners Arms is shown before an extension to the front of the building.

We would love to see your old photos and to print them in the paper.

Email them to, post them on our Facebook page at or drop them through the door at our office in Ilkeston.
