Have you spotted the well dressing? We think it’s rather wonderful. Well done to the ladies who created it!
Did one of my favourite walks yesterday, over Lark Hill, down Castleshaw Valley into Delph village. Spent an hour or so sketching the White Lion pub. We used to live up this lane when I was growing up in the 70s, when the West Indies cricket star Sonny Ramadhin was landlord of the White Lion.
Yesterday was also the first day the well-dressing plaque went on display in the tiny gardens near the pub. This ancient tradition giving thanks for our water sources is being revived in Saddleworth. Delph no longer has a well so they chose a prominent spot where people would be able to see this exquisite handiwork. There was no indication of the floral artist's name unfortunately.
