Making Hereford’s Labyrinth

Many thanks to Mike Booth who came along and spoke so inspiringly about the Hereford Labyrinth project at our HGN Members Meeting last week. The project is to install a replica of the Mappa Mundi labyrinth on Hereford’s Bishop’s Meadows. There is more information about the project on the Hereford Labyrinth website:

Mike has promised to come back and talk to an HGN Gathering in the near future.. so watch this space!

In the meantime here is an update on the project from Mike, with details for those of you who might be interested to support – or to get actively involved:

Well, we’ve raised the money (thank you) and the Council have granted us a Licence (thank you).  Its now up to us! The Contractors are starting work tomorrow (Monday), preparing the ground for us to Lay the Labyrinth this coming weekend (30th and Oct 1st).
Are you free this weekend? Would you like to help? Or do you know someone who would?
The work will be mainly trundling wheelbarrows around with small amounts of soil or gravel to fill in the pattern of the Labyrinth.
If you can help, please email with the following details:
1.  How many of you?
2.  Can you bring a wheelbarrow and/or a spade/shovel?
3.  Which days or parts of days you can manage?
We will start at 10.00 on the Saturday and the Sunday.  Lunch break 1.00 – 2.00.
Toilets and refreshments will be available at the Leisure Pool or the Tennis Kiosk.
Looking forward to hearing from you and thank you for helping with this unique project for the people of Herefordshire.
