MIDDLETON BY YOULGRAVE
The old sheepwash
area in Middleton Dale is used to soak the clay panels for
The panels are then
marked out with brown wool using the scaled up design which
was printed on paper as a template.
Each panel is then 'petalled' by volunteers for the five
days prior to the blessing of the well on Saturday
welcome to help insert the thousands of petals and herbage
needed to complete the design. The work is kept damp with
newspaper and water spray throughout the week.
