It’s Litton Well Dressing Week

Litton Village Well Dressing

Well dressing week is one of the highlights of the Litton village calendar. Villagers come together to do the “petalling” in the days before the finished well dressings are erected in front of the church and school. This year’s designs share a common watery theme and as ever, are really stunning. The children’s well is called “Under the Sea” and features all sorts of fish and sea creatures. The adult well celebrates “The Water of Life” and both were blessed yesterday, before local school children, dressed in Victorian costumes performed May pole dancing, accompanied by Cressbrook brass band.

The atmosphere was very festive and the hot and sunny weather meant that the beer festival at the Red Lion pub and the ice cream stall at Litton Village Shop were very well patronised!

Well dressings take place in most of the Derbyshire villages throughout the summer. Click here for a full list of dates so you can see one during your stay with us. Find our availability here.
