Well dressing 2013

A gallery of pictures showing Hayfield's well dressing

The wells of Hayfield and the river used to be the main water supply for villagers. Many wells were still in use in the early 20th century but over the years most fell into disrepair.
The re-introduction of the ancient celebration of wells dressing has led to a new awareness of their historic importance to the village. Some wells have been restored and six are now dressed in July.
