Pagan Eye: Julian's Bower Maze
Here is a photo of Julian's Bower Maze in Alkborough, North Lincolnshire, taken by Claire Wickham. She kindly sent it to me after I mentioned I had walked a labyrinth at the Mind Body Soul event in London last weekend.
Although Julian's Bower is called a maze, it is really a labyrinth because it only has a single path from the entrance to the centre. No one knows the true age or origins of the turf-cut labyrinth, although it dates at least as far back as the 13th century and local folklore says it is far more ancient.
My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.
