Whitwell Well Dressing on The Green

About

This ancient custom is unique to Derbyshire. The 1st Whitwell Scout and Guide Group has been creating well dressings for over 40 years and it is the main fundraising event of the year.

The designs are drawn on paper, laid over wet clay and the image 'pricked out' using cocktail sticks. The 'dots' are joined then overlaid with wool. The picture is then created using all fresh and dried natural materials sourced locally. Villagers in Whitwell dress 2 wells.
