Major Events in Hayfield




 Bank St Well

This year is the 75th anniversary of the Kinder Mass Trespass which took place in 1932

This well is a trough type built into the retaining wall for High St and in 2004 it was the first well in Hayfield to be dressed.


Watery Hey Well

Hayfield May Queen celebrates its
80th anniversary this year

Watery Hey well is just off Valley Rd to the right off the path connecting to Kinder Rd known to locals as Watery Hey

It used to provide water for the adjacent rows of terrace houses

St John's Well

Sheepdog Trials which were restarted in 1977 celebrate their 30th anniversary this year


The Gospel Well off Ridge Top Lane is within a circular wall in a field on the left and cannot be seen. Tradition has it that the early Methodists in the 1770's preached in the open air near this well. Until the 1930's water from the Gospel Well was laid on to the Chapel and was found very useful, unfortunately it had to be disconnected as it was causing corrosion of the pipes.

As the Gospel well site is not accessible the dressing is placed outside
St John's Church in the car park
