This ancient custom is almost unique to Derbyshire and is the art of decorating springs and wells using only natural materials. Upper Langwith began dressing wells in 1992 to keep up the tradition in Derbyshire. Refreshments are served in the Community Hall throughout the event. The village dresses 2 wells.
Both well at Holy Cross Church (NG20 9RF)
Thursday 11 July 2013, 9.30am at Holy Cross Church, Rectory Road.
