Here's a maze trod indeed, through forth-
I design gardens with a theatrical celebratory sense of place. Designs are built on formal principles of sacred geometry and iconic imagery imbued with a sense of playfulness, contemplation, discovery, surprise and sanctuary.
I have a keen interest in labyrinths; their design, symbolism and ancient roots. My designs are sometimes formal, permanent (raised banks, stone paths, cobbles) or ephemeral (fire, mowed grass, sand)
Racing Labyrinth (or processional labyrinth)
I have recently designed double entry labyrinths. These have produced a whole knew sport and have become increasingly popular (see CV)
Here are the Rules:
2 runners -
On “Go” race off in opposite directions and follow your path and race for the centre. Both ways are exactly the same distance and at some point you’ll cross each other and the beauty is no one knows who’s winning till the very last moment. Distance to the centre one third of a mile!
2 relay teams -
When your runner reaches the centre, then the next runner in your team hits the track.
Walking, unicycling or piggy back racing, lantern or wedding processions are also allowed!
They are very good for sports training where agility and balance are required.

Walking the Milk Way
For the magical nighttime romantic experience.
I now offer Labyrinths illuminated like the Milky Way with 4000 solar powered fairy lights.
Often a feature of my garden work and design.
