Wingerworth Well Dressing 2018

About

This ancient custom is all but unique to Derbyshire. At its simplest, it’s the art of decorating wells and springs with pictures made using only natural materials. The best way to find out how a well dressing is created is to watch the well dressers at work.

The wells are dressed on site at the Sheepwash.
