Mazes and Labyrinths

6 7 The Hampton Court maze is a true maze you can get quite lost The present hedges were planted in 1690 and the maze may be even older than that. At least twelve copies following the Hampton Court route have been built in the British Isles and over half a million people now walk the original each year. The design was ahead of its time it includes an island, a length of hedge in no way connected to the outer perimeter, making it harder to solve see pages 1012. Go in, turn right, left twice, and then right four times to reach the centre. That makes seven turns. Or have I got my left and right upside down and back to front Shown below is a near copy which can be found under the west tower of St. Helena and St. Marys church, Bourn, in Cambridgeshire. It dates from 1875. In 1912 the font was moved on top of the maze, rendering its confusions unwalkable. HAMpTON COurT seven turns and an island
