Well Dressing at Tissington in Derbyshire

This is one of the more famous Derbyshire well dressing events but the first time I've remembered in time to go and have a look! It was a pretty spectacular show and the photos just don't do the intricate artwork justice. They are all composed of small flower petals and leaves. There were six wells all around the village and this is what they look like at the moment.













It was a very pleasant afternoon out with tea and cake to finish off with

Lovely shots. Amazing to think that it's all done with flowers, petals and greenery.

Re: Well Dressing at Tissington in Derbyshire

I didn't think to take any close up shots on the day so here are a few close crops to hopefully show up some of the details.

Re: Well Dressing at Tissington in Derbyshire

Phill, sorry I didn't reply earlier, what an extraordinary event, and your superb presentation of it.
Is what I am seeing all done with just flower petals that in a short time will simply wither away?
I can see that all well dressings show great dedication.

Re: Well Dressing at Tissington in Derbyshire

Yes its a superb event Rob. Is the Wakes event a separate event? hadn't heard of that?

Mark this is a pretty local custom around Derbyshire villages. I don't think anywhere else in the country do this. As you said it is pretty painstaking work and the villages are certainly very dedicated people. Many villages and towns tend to get schools involved with lots of the wells being dressed by children.

Here is a link I just found explaining what goes on.
