Holmesfield Well Dressing

About

This ancient custom is only found in Derbyshire and is the art of decorating wells and springs with picture made using only natural materials – berries, seeds, leaves, flowers…

Working from their own design, the well dressing is brought together by the children of the Holmesfield community, Penny Acres Primary School and Holmesfield Scouts. There is one well in Holmesfield.

Well Location
Millennium Gardens, Main Road, opposite The Angle pub (S44 7WT)
