Bishop Maze
Created by Rex Bishop
Planted: 1963

This cedar maze was created Rex Bishop, the first superintendent of the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority. Bishop was born and raised in England As a boy, he had a particular fondness for wanderig in the maze of yew trees at Hampton Court in Teddington near London, England.

During his time as superintendent at the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority, Bishop wrote to Hampton Court to request a draft of the maze's layout. From the design, Bishop began to recreate the maze at Fanshaw Pioneer Village using privet hedges in the spring of 1962. Sadly, a very cold winter destoryed the deges and the following spring more hardy cedar hedges were planted instead. Those cedar hedges remain to this day as a modern replica of the maze at Hampton Court and as a tribute to Rex Bishop who contributed greatly to the early developemen t of Fanshawe Pioneer Village.
