Well Dressings

Welcome to the Well Dressings page

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

The Village Pump Well is designed by local artist Lucy Annat, with the school designing their well. They are joined by a group of helpers including local 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.
