Customs and Traditions - Well Dressing - Tissington

An example of the custom of well dressing to be found in Tissington, Derbyshire. The custom dates back to the mid 14th Century and the time of the Black Death. Folklore has it that the purity of the water in the five wells of Tissington kept the village from being ravished by the plague. Another story relates the the severe drought suffered in 1615, when the wells never ran dry. In each case, the well dressing arose from the villagers gratitude.
