Derbyshire Well Dressing June 19th

Our annual Well Dressing trip is one not to be missed. We will start at Bakewell on its busy market day for a little shopping or sightseeing and a bite to eat and then onwards to the delightful little village of Litton where every pupil in the small village school, including the teachers, are dressed in Victorian clothing with the young boys in waistcoats and caps and the little girls in pinafores and lacy bonnets. Every year they give a delightful display of dancing round the maypole and English Country dancing. Some of the pupils are so tiny their little legs have a job keeping up with the others. We will have drinks and delicious cakes made by the mothers. The next stop is Tideswell where one street is completely decorated by the residents plus around five wells professionally decorated plus the small church and the cathedral. Price £20.00
