Wessington Well Dressing


This ancient custom is only found in Derbyshire. Wessington has natural wells on its main Village Green which were still used in the 1950's. It also has a Nature Reserve which is a Site of Special Importance as declared by English Nature. The village dresses 4 wells (including one designed by the Children of the local Primary School). Refreshments will be available all weekend at Christ Church and the Horse and Jockey pub.

Fun day and school summer fayre on Saturday 4 July 2020.
