Long Description:
The maze was created in 2001 and donated to the town of Ripon by the Rotary Club.

It recreates an historical maze that used to be on moorland above the town until 1827 when the open moorland was subdivided and enclosed with walls or fences.

It is believed that the original maze was associated with fertility rites and was called the Maidens Bower.

This modern maze has an old millstone at its centre.
