Well Dressing

On Sunday mum and I had a lovely day out in Derbyshire visiting the villages of Foolow and Eyam for their well dressing celebrations. The origin of well dressing is lost in the mists of time but you can read about it here.

These wells are beautiful works of art in themselves which many members of the local community work on. The detail is amazing.

This well in the village of Foolow was decorated by the local children.

This beautiful decoration was in Eyam which is also known as the Plague Village as a stand was made here by the inhabitants in the plague of 1665. You can read about it here.
