Spital Cemetery Well Dressing

About

This ancient custom is unique to Derbyshire. This is only the second year of doing a well dressing at the Cemetery. There was a well used by the monks of the Leper Hospital that was close to this site and we have set the dressing where we believe the well stood.

This year we will be using a gravestone carving as the inspiration for our well dressing. We have chosen the suffragette colours of green, white and purple to commemorate the centenary of some women being given the vote.
