Labyrinth in my garden, glowing in the Autumn sunset (see the long shadow from
the standing stone). The design is a classical
seven circuit labyrinth. The centre was changed so that there
are no straight lines, like the entrance stone at Newgrange
The labyrinth design resembles that of the carvings on the entrance stone at Newgrange.

Labyrinth after a fall of snow, the only significant snow for the winter of 2005/2006.

Garden Labyrinth with standing stone, the larger stones in the ground (at
the front in the photograph) mark the setting sun at the winter solstice,
equinox and summer solstice. Three stones on the east of the labyrinth (at
the back in the photograph) mark the rising sun at the
and summer solstice.
A full moon rising over the labyrinth - August 23rd 2010
Labyrinth at sunset - September 17th 2010. The Labyrinth is aligned east/west so the shadow
from the standing stone is nicely centred, close to its equinox position.

When the garden labyrinth was first constructed, the paving bricks were
placed on the grass, maintenance was time consuming, so the paving bricks
were sunk to be flush with the ground.
