Well Dressings


The Well Dressings and Blessing takes place on the site of the Village Pump on the first Saturday of Wakes fortnight in early September. There is also a School Well by the War Memorial.

The Organiser is Jane Allen and both Wells are designed by local artist Lucy Annat. They are joined by a group of around eight helpers and schoolchildren to build the wells.

The boards are soaked for several days in Hartington pond, filled with ‘puddled’ clay and then taken to the Village Hall and School where ‘petalling’ takes around 5 days. New helpers are always welcome and should simply contact Jane or Lucy.
