Centrally located in Jubilee Garden bandstand, the labyrinth is made out of contrasting paving blocks laid over the existing concrete slab, which will permit its continued use for music performances and art exhibitions.
Using the 100 x 200mm module of a standard sand-bedded block, the local designer, John Ready, was able to devise a labyrinth of nine turns within the overall width of 6.1 metres, which winds towards and around the centre, before moving outwards again to finish adjacent to the starting point.
The overall length of the path is over 100 yards and its various turns reveal attractive views over the garden, with the soaring spire of St Mary’s Church beyond. The central octagon of the labyrinth is decorated with a sleeping hare of semi-abstract design.
