The willow maze has become increasingly difficult to maintain, and in places the “walls“ are now quite gappy. 

We are therefore proposing to cut the willows down to ground level, and allow the stumps to resprout. The fresh regrowth will then be woven into new walls, which will be kept lower than before to simplify future management. It will be next year before the maze is in full working order once more, but we hope it will bring pleasure to visitors for many years to come. So please don’t be surprised when the maze disappears; this will only be temporary!
