Clowne Blessing Service 2019

About

This ancient custom is only found in Derbyshire and is the art of decorating springs and wells with pictures made from natural materials. The villagers of Clowne dress two wells and are proud of keeping 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
