Well Dressings 2024

Rowsley well dressing accommodation 2023

Well dressing is a uniquely Derbyshire tradition dating back to medieval times.  A board is soaked in the river and then covered with clay so a design can be created using petals, moss, seeds, cones and all sorts of other natural materials.  Most villages in Derbyshire have a well dressing week sometime between May and September and ours coincides with the neighbouring village of Youlgreave and Bakewell at the end of June, beginning of July.
