The Maze of Saffron Walden

The Saffron Walden Town Maze in England is the largest, historical
turf-cut labyrinth in Europe. It has a diameter of 35 m and the way is
about 1500 m long. It has 17 circuits with 4 swells and ranks among the medieval type. The exact age is unknown, but in 1699 there was paid 15 shillings for re-cutting the maze. In 1911, the chalk path was laid with bricks.

Also Google Earth sees the labyrinth and makes possible a bird’s eye view.

Here the exact coordinates, if you like to search for and find the labyrinth with the aid of your navigation system:
N 52° 1 ‘ 25.92″
E 0° 14 ‘ 50.32″

Today, the municipality workers of the city of Saffron Walden are mowing the English lawn and if quite many visitors (like here in 2005 under the awake eyes of Jeff Saward) are walking labyrinth, it remains probably still for a long time.

The Outdoor Labyrinth of Grace Cathedral at San Francisco

Grace Cathedral is something like the home of the labyrinth in the USA. Lauren Artress discovered the old labyrinth in the cathedral of Chartres in France again and released with her book Walking A Sacred Path • • • Rediscovering the labyrinth as A Spiritual Tool a world-wide Renaissance of the labyrinth idea. She brought also the labyrinth into Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. In addition there is still an other one outdoor the cathedral.
On Google Earth you can see it very good.

Here is a map section, in which one can also navigate.
