Listening to the Labyrinth

We were treated to a lovely dinner last night in celebration of a new book, Listening to the Labyrinth, that has just arrived on the Labyrinthos bookshelf.

Poetic Addendum

This little display hangs in one of the small side rooms in the Hilton Village Hall; we don’t know what year these poems were penned, but I love the sense they give of local village pride, and their commitment to keeping their heritage alive. We have visited Hilton enough times to have witnessed decades of family [Read More]

A Grand Day Out!

It was months in the planning, but so worth it! Twenty-five labyrinth enthusiasts gathered in the Cambridgeshire village of Hilton yesterday for a day of labyrinth walking, information, and community.  We couldn’t have asked for a nicer day… even the weather gods cooperated, so we were able to spend plenty of time out on the [Read More]

With cameras in hand, we headed first to the Mirror Labyrinth in Victory Park to play with our reflections. Created within the boundaries of the Olympic Park in 2015, the Mirror [Read More]

Mirror Maze on the Midway

Remember the thrill of winding through a mirror maze when you were a child? This (old) picture looks so familiar to me; I remember going to the Napa Town and Country Fair with my family every year, and these mirror mazes were always set up somewhere along the midway. I guess it really dates me [Read More]

Our Lady and the Labyrinth at Guingamp

As part of our Labyrinthos website redesign, we’ve been sorting through stacks of old photographs and remembering past travels and visits – so many labyrinths, so many memories! This lovely labyrinth in Guingamp, France, is one of our favourites although we have only seen it one time, way back in our early travels together, circa 2001. We [Read More]
