TISSINGTON HALL PRIVATE TOUR and TISSINGTON WELL DRESSINGS
Date: SATURDAY 1st JUNE 2019
Venue: TISSINGTON VILLAGE, ASHBOURNE, DERBYS DE6 1RA
Time: 1.00pm, after the morning walk
We have been given permission by Sir Richard FitzHerbert, the current Baronet and owner of Tissington Hall, to have a private tour of The Hall. The tour has been planned to coincide with the Annual Well Dressing Festival which is held in the village.
Tissington Hall was built in 1609 by Francis FitzHerbert to replace the moated fortification that guarded the Norman Church of St Mary’s in the centre of the village. For over 400 years the Hall has presided over this picturesque Estate Village.
The origins of Well Dressing are lost in antiquity. One theory says that the custom began just after the Black Death of 1348-9. Although the population round about was ravaged by plague, in Tissington all escaped, and the immunity was ascribed to the purity of the water supply. It became the custom to decorate the wells in thanksgiving.
Following the morning walk there will be time for lunch before commencing the tour.
At 12.50pm we will meet at the Hall for a 90-minute tour. Afterwards members will be able to stroll around the village viewing the well dressings. The church will also be open and there will be a video on show explaining more about the well dressings.
Cost of the private tour: £12.00 per person
Anyone not going on the morning walk, please meet at the entrance to the Hall at 12.50pm.
Parking – please see details in previous entry for the morning walk.
Access for visitors with disabilities and especially those using wheelchairs is very restricted.
Booking Deadline: Monday 13th May 2019 (please book early as places are limited).
