Dore Well Dressing

About

An ancient custom that's all but unique to Derbyshire. At its simplest, well dressing is the art of decorating springs and wells with pictures made from natural materials. The best way to find out how we do this is to come along and watch us at work.

Venue
The Scout Hut, Rushely Road, off top of Dore Road, continuation of Limb Lane (S17 3EH)
