Long Description:
A Yew Hedge Maze, labyrinth and grass mazes can be found in the Southern Walled Garden at Weston Park. The garden was restored by the Weston Park Foundation in 2005 and as well as the mazes is now to home to heritage varieties of apple trees and a sensory garden. (visit link)

The maze that measures 1296 square meters was begun in 2005 and completed in 2006. 1,400 Yew Trees were planted by three gardeners and two members of the park maintanance team. The total length of the hedge for the maze measures 700 meters and 60 tons of woodchip were used to cover the pathways.
It should take approximately 5-10 mins (unless you get lost!) to reach the centre where there is a stone column with a sundial on the top.

Weston Park is a magnificent stately home that sits amongst 1,000 acres of well kept gardens bursting with centuries of history, and developed under the watchful eyes of landscape architects who have created garden masterpieces throughout their time. From James Paine to Lancelot 'Capability' Brown, Weston's expansive vistas and breath taking flowers offer more than just the opportunity for a gentle stroll but a peaceful getaway.
