Residents will be toasting the completion of a restoration project on an ancient well.

A celebration will be held at Dally Wash well in Dalley Lane, Belper Lane End, on Saturday, June 25, from 2pm to 2.30pm, with cream teas afterwards.

The well was used as a pump until the 1920s when Belper Lane End received a piped water supply and the site became overgrown.

Restoration work began in 2006, thanks to the Friends of St. Faiths and the Heritage Lottery Fund,
