Well Dressing ‘Jacob and Rachel’, Stoney Middleton (1939)

Recent Photograph of Well Dressing ‘Jacob and Rachel’ (1939) (Stoney Middleton)

This photograph was taken by my father. The subject of the other Well Dressing in 1939, of which I also have a photograph he took, was captioned 'Praise'.

This would have been the last year of Well Dressing in Stoney Middleton until after the War. However the tradition has continued since then.

Some notes on The Derbyshire Custom of Well Dressing (provided by Derek Lee, of Foolow) are available on a separate web page.
