PAST ACTIVITIES:

WELL DRESSINGS IN BUXTON, DERBYSHIRE – WEDNESDAY 10 JULY

For those of you not familiar with what a Well Dressing is – they are celebrated in at least twelve villages in Derbyshire, and of special significance is the village of Eyam whose residents quarantined the entire village because of the plague.
We have chosen Buxton as a place to visit, which will have three Wells dressed and is a lovely Spa town with a variety of shops and eateries.
We will stop at Leek for a coffee break on the way to Buxton.
The Well Dressings are constructed the week before on puddled clay set in a wooden frame,with flower petals, leaves and berries creating a picture, often religious.
Cost £18.00 to include coach, group fee and driver gratuity. Coach leaves Stourbridge at 9.00am and Kinver at 9.15am.
