labyrinths in various forms have been a preoccupation of mankind for
thousands of years. Maze designs have been carved on rocks, laid as
mosaics and stone pavements, cut into turf, planted with bushes, and
carved out of seasonal crops. This book traces the history of mazes
worldwide from the earliest known examples, and then describes those
which have been created in Britain's gardens, parks and landscape.
Britain's diversity in forms of maze and labyrinth construction is
unparalleled anywhere in the world.
Includes the mirror mazes of Wookey
Hole and Longleat House, and hedge mazes at attractions such as
Wonderland Family Park (Bournemouth), Blackpool Pleasure Beach and
Legoland (Windsor). Includes details of mazes open to the public.
