Carving of Samuel Taylor
This large carving created by Andrew Frost can be found in the Stanton Road Graveyard. The carving is a depiction of Samuel Taylor, Ilkeston's Giant, who was born in the Little Hallam area of the town in 1816 and grew to a height of 7 feet 4 inches. Standing close to the last resting place of Samuel, his great height is shown on his grave by a footstone marked "ST".
