Tissington Well Dressing – May 2021

Now that we have a roadmap to the end of lockdown summer events are coming thick and fast.  We are hoping to open on 17th May‚ right bang slap in the middle of the Tissington Welldressing week 13th-19th May.  Tissington village is a beautiful estate village in the south of the National Park close to Ashbourne‚ dominated by the Hall‚ an early 17th century Jacobean mansion.  There are half a dozen wells dotted through the village all magnificently dressed with designs made of local flower petals‚ moss‚ cones‚ seeds and other natural materials laid out on boards of wet clay‚ in keeping with the ancient tradition started to celebrate the ending of the plague. Tissington definitely have one of the best well dressing displays of any village in the county and it is a wonderful event to enjoy.
