Well Dressing

17 - 23 August 2016

The ancient Derbyshire custom of Well Dressing is brought to life in Barlow with 3 Wells being dressed to coincide with the Carnival

 

Each Dressing depicts a different scene, teams of skilled 'dressers' with varying techniques produce fantastic pictures made up of flowers, seeds, grasses (anything that grows really!)

 

Have a look at the Well Dressing website to find out more, or better still come and find out for yourself
