In love with labyrinths
The Abingdon Labyrinth dates from the 11th century as an illustration in a book produced in Abingdon near Oxford, England. Although well known by labyrinth enthusiasts this design has never before existed in physical form in the town of its origin. As part of a major refurbishment project The Labyrinth Builders have now recreated this ancient design within St Michaels and All Angels Church in the town of Abingdon.
