This fabulous estate village with it’s chocolate box pretty Peak District cottages, village green and picture postcard duck pond is an idyllic Peak District place to visit.

The village is most closely associated for its famous Peak District ‘Well Dressing‘ – a pagan tradition in which each May ‘wells’ are decorated with designs created from flower petals. Wooden frames are constructed and covered with clay, mixed with water and salt. A design is then traced onto the clay, often a religious theme. The picture is then filled with natural materials, predominantly flower petals and mosses.
