Crosspool Well Dressing Board 2014

Peak District Well Dressings

From May through until September well dressings  decorate several Peak District towns and villages.

Well dressing  is a summer custom in which wells or other water sources are decorated with designs created from flower petals. Wooden frames are  covered with clay mixed with water and salt. A design (often with a religious theme) is sketched on paper and this is traced onto the clay ready for the decoration.

The breakfast was the best we have had for a very long time, there was plenty of choice and it was full of flavour. A fantastic farm stay
