Tudor labyrinth given colour by pupils’ flowers
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.
