Cressbrook 2/3

We were fortunate enough to be in Cressbrook whilst the annual well dressing was on display. Made completely from flower petals set in clay this is a fantastic example of this Derbyshire tradition.

This is wonderful, this would have made a perfect boat-friday picture. Have a great weekend.
Brian Walbey: I thought Boat Friday but ended up with yesterdays for that, this and that canoe are almost next to each other.
I would like to see some of these in real life. Does this happen at a certain time of year.
Brian Walbey: I'm so glad your interested in well dressings Mary, they are superb creations. My link tells you what they are all about and this link http://welldressing.com/calendar.php shows the when and where for 2014. If you put 'derbyshire well dressings' in the search box on Flickr you will get loads of photos of similar things from different places to look at.
That is a great tradition, isn't it Brian? This is really wonderful!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, my link tells you what they are all about and this one http://welldressing.com/calendar.php shows just how many places carry on this tradition.
A delightful piece of artwork Brian
Brian Walbey: They are works of art as far as I'm concerned Janet, they take a lot of time and effort to put together and bring communities together during their construction.
Wonderful isn't it? We have been saying for years we should go and see it again!
Brian Walbey: WE don't go specifically to see these things but have seen quite a few during our Derbyshire visits. This site http://welldressing.com/calendar.php has the 2014 timetable, I guess there will be a similar thing next year you could look out for.

Yes, I heard about the tradition of well dressing - this is a very lovely example!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine, these creations really have to be seen to be admired.
Cressbrook has a wonderful tradition and this piece of living art is simply superb Brian... and you framed it very well....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Not just Cressbrook Peter but the whole of the Peak District area at different times throughout the summer.
Isn't that amazing!
Brian Walbey: One sees some beautiful creations like this throughout the summer in the Peak District Elizabeth.
