An ancient custom that's only found in or around the borders of Derbyshire. Well dressing might date back to the Celts, or perhaps even earlier, but what exactly is it? At its simplest, well dressing is the art of decorating springs and wells with pictures made from natural materials. The well is finished and put on show the day before the Blessing Service.
