Clowne Well Dressing under construction


Come and see the volunteers constructing the well dressings at Clowne and find out more about this ancient custom that’s unique to Derbyshire. The design is marked from the paper onto the clay and is then outlined in wool before natural materials are used to ‘colour in’ the pattern.

Unfortunately, we only have limited access and no 'hands on' is available for visitors.
