Ilam, Staffordshire Peak District


Ilam, a tiny little village in the Peak District, but oh so picturesque….


It’s also the home of Dovedale House, the Youth Retreat Centre of the Diocese of Lichfield. The diocese has a really good companion diocese relationship with the Diocese of West Malaysia, and hosts volunteers from Malaysia under the St. Chad’s Volunteers Scheme.

A great experience, smiles all round ~ welcome to the UK, Christopher!
