Elmton Well Dressing

About

The ancient custom of Well Dressing is only found in Derbyshire and is the art of decorating springs and wells with pictures made from natural materials.

Well dressing has taken place in Elmton for over 30 years and the village displays three well dressings. The main board is worked on by local residents from Elmton, Creswell and Clowne villages and the two smaller boards are designed and completed by children from Creswell Infant and Nursery School and Hodthorpe Primary School.

The School Room opens and serves cream teas 1pm to 5pm on 30 June and 1 July. The Elm Tree Inn also serves food all day from 12noon.

The Well Dressing is part of Elmton Festival with exhibitions, a brass band in the afternoon on 30 June, and four gardens open 1pm to 5pm on 30 June and 1 July.
