Chapel-en-le-Frith is in the Derbyshire Peak District, where a small chapel was built in 1225 (hence the name).The small town has a number of festivals and events including an annual carnival held in June, and the well dressing festival of July. It has a traditional market place complete with village stocks and an ancient market cross.
Creswell Crags is in the vicinity and there you can see examples of rock art from pre-historic times, but if that’s not for you, there’s always the adventure of going on a high wire and walking through the tree tops. Chatsworth, the home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire is also in the area, so if you are visiting the Peak District, Chapel-en-le-Frith would be a good place to stay.
Well dressing in Derbyshire
No one really knows why well dressing began, although it was probably from historic religions. The colourful decorations, made predominantly with leaves and flower petals stuck on a clay frame, are a well known local tradition.
It may have been a custom that was brought to Derbyshire by the Romans, although no one is certain about this either. If you go to see a well-dressing, obviously be careful not to have accidents in or around them.
If however, in the occasion that there is such a rare incident, this is also something that you could claim compensation for. We will move onto solicitors available in the area, and how to contact themOpen Claim Calculator
