Hadrian’s Wall Peace Labyrinth
A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering and purposeful path.
The idea of creating a living labyrinth began in 2007 and after liasing with Northumberland National Park the ideal location was found at Walltown, near Greenhead. Negotiations and feasibility studies took place and planning permission granted. Next came scale drawings and research for different coloured willow plants. Gradually the concept became a reality in 2011.
Hadrian’s Wall Labyrinth is based on the pattern of the seven path Cretan Labyrinth.
The labyrinth offers an opportunity to take a journey into its centre where it provides a place of tranquility and contemplation. Labyrinths can also be a delightful way to celebrate special occasions as, through its winding paths, it reflects the twists and turns of life’s journey.
