The Labyrinth - Part One

A contemplation on the purpose and symbolism of labyrinths

The largest Medieval turf maze in Europe at Saffron Walden in Essex prompts a contemplation on the purpose and symbolism of the unicursal labyrinth, which only has one path, and takes you from the edge to the centre.

This series explores the power of the labyrinth as a tool for contemplation and prayer.
