Well dressing, also known as well flowering is a tradition that you will find in various parts of rural England.

Each village will decorate their wells, springs and other water sources completely out of flower petals. This event is most popular with villages in the Peak District, Derbyshire and Staffordshire. With some of the villages you can go and see them construct the well dressing as well as then see the finished product! We have done some research and found a list of all the well dressing events that are just a drive away from our Rivendale Lodge Retreat if you are staying with us over the spring months.
