Buxton Well Dressing 2021 – now on display celebrating key Derbyshire milestones

Buxton Well Dressing 2021

After cancelling the Well Dressing in Buxton in 2020 the Well Dressing Committee was
determined to carry on their ancient Derbyshire tradition, at least in part, in 2021. It was felt too be too soon to organise a Carnival but St. Ann’s Well is dressed and now on show
from Saturday 4th September until Sunday 12th September 2021.

Just one well is dressed so that the volunteers were able to maintain social distancing
during the process.

The design commemorates the 70th anniversary of the Peak District National Park
and also the buildings of Buxton to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Pavilion
Gardens and the re-opening of The Crescent.

“The countryside and the parks of our town have been such a solace during lockdown. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful area and lovely town we wanted to celebrate these milestones”, said Christine Gould, Buxton Well Dressing Secretary.
