Over Haddon well dressing 2017

The impressive 2017 well dressing in Over Haddon, a village in Derbyshire near Bakewell.

Also known as well flowering, well dressing is a tradition practised in some parts of rural England in which wells, springs and other water sources are decorated with designs created from flower petals. The custom is most closely associated with the Peak District of Derbyshire and Staffordshire.
