The Tofte Labyrinth

Highly Commended in the Annual Awards of The Association of Professional Landscapers 2007

This representation of the medieval pavement labyrinth in Chartres Cathedral, France was designed by Jeff Saward and Andrew Wiggins in collaboration with Suzy Castleman the owner of Tofte Manor where the labyrinth is located.

The original stone pavement is replaced by bespoke hand bedded paviors and turf in a 114% scaled version of the original early 13th Century labyrinth.
