Tapton Lock on the Chesterfield Canal

About

Well dressing is the ancient art of decorating springs and wells with pictures made from natural materials. Come and see the volunteers constructing the 2020 well dressing at Tapton Lock, as part of the Tapton Lock Festival, and find out more about this custom that’s unique to Derbyshire.

The Don Catchment Rivers Trust will be making a small well dressing that will refelect the importance of water to the river and give thanks to the wildlife it provides for.
