    Details

    Find out more about this ancient Derbyshire custom by watching the well dressers working on the dressings. Find out how such intricate and beautiful images are created using only natural materials.

    The designs are outlined in wool and only natural materials are used to complete the design. Four wells are dressed at Brackenfield and two of them are dressed in the Church Hall.
