Clowne Well Dressing 2022 new


22 Jul 2023

Clowne Well Dressing

This ancient custom is only found in Derbyshire and is the art of decorating springs and wells with pictures made from natural materials.


When: 22nd July 2023, 9:00am

The villagers of Clowne have been dressing wells for many years and are proud to keep the tradition of giving thanks for water with intricate floral pictures. The name Clowne ('Clun') denotes a place of springs, so it's right that the village should mark the blessing of the wells
