Tudor labyrinth given colour by pupils’ flow­ers

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

ONE of Eng­land’s largestTu­dor labyrinths is be­ing brought back to life in flow­ers thanks to school­child­ren from Oun­dle and King’s Cliffe Mid­dle School.

More than 700 pupils from the school, in Cot­ter­stock Road, Oun­dle, made 1,400 spring flow­ers, with the help of lo­cal artist So­phie Cul­li­nan, which were used to dec­o­rate a mile­long path­way en­cir­cling the mid­dle gar­den at Lyve­den New Bield.

Prop­erty man­ager Mark Brad­shaw said: “The Na­tion­al­Trust is de­lighted by the en­thu­si­asm of the whole school in help­ing bring his­tory to life at Lyve­den.

“The newly cre­ated labyrinth looks amaz­ing now it is lined with hun­dreds of multi-coloured flow­ers sway­ing on springs in the sum­mer breeze.”

Vis­i­tors to the prop­erty near Oun­dle, which was the gar­den project of El­iz­a­bethan Sir ThomasTre­sham, added their own hand­made flow­ers to the blooms over the re­cent Bank Hol­i­day week­end.

The flow­ers will be on dis­play at the prop­erty un­til Au­gust 1.
