Ilam was rebuilt as a model village in the 19th century and like Edensor at Chatsworth, has a slightly ‘Chocolate Box’ appearance.

Ilam is now owned by the National Trust and is popular with Peak District visitors because of its literary links with Isaac Walton (Compleat Angler), Boswell and Johnson.

It is also popular as it is close to Dovedale. The Hall partially survives and is a youth hostel. There are the remains of Saxon crosses in the church.
