Tideswell Tales

Voices and Pictures from Tideswell and Litton's recent past

A Tideswell Celebration, but when?

“The photo show a house (now called Evelyn House) and the adjacent Old Post Office, in Church Street Tideswell decorated for the Well Dressing & Wakes Week celebrations which are held in June to commemorate St. John the Baptist. The plaques are made of a wire-netting frame with crepe paper pushed through to incorporate a pattern. The only trouble was once it rained it was spoilt! Nowadays coloured carrier-bags are used”.

Can anyone help us put a date to these photos?

The photo is shown with the kind permission of Mrs Sylvia Finley (nee Brocklehurst)
