Who are we?

Wirksworth is steeped in history and boasts a fantastic landscape. The area has many footpaths taking you through the beautiful countryside of Derbyshire

The inhabitants of Wirksworth are proud of its heritage and still celebrate traditions, such as the Well Dressings. Well Dressing is a unique Peak District tradition, where Wells are decorated with natural materials to create fantastic designs. 
Each year Wirksworth comes alive and hosts a weekend of entertainment in support of the Well Dressings; aiming to unite the community, local areas and visitors.

Come and join us in celebrating our community

Thank you,
