Breamore Mizmaze

Hampshire, United Kingdom

The Breamore mizmaze is one of eight remaining ancient turf labyrinths in England. The first record of the mizmaze is in 1783, but it is thought to be much older than that. It is of a circular design, a labyrinth cut into quarters by a Christian cross.

Beautiful scheduled spot, that seems a very magical spot when you think of the 800 years of history and people that visited the site. Only wish you could do the maze.

Great for a walk if you are in the area.Not really much to look at but something to head for if you fancy a bit of exercise.The plaque there says something about related sites in Italy and France which is kind of the most interesting thing there.There is a new bench and sign which I think has been put up by a local farmer.I think it relates to someone who used to walk there a lot possibly with his dog.

Kastelholma Castle

First record of Kastelholma (or Kastelholm) castle is from the year 1388 in the contract of Queen Margaret I of Denmark, where a large portion of the inheritance of Bo Jonsson Grip was given to the queen. The heyday of the castle was in the 15th and 16th centuries when it was administrated by Danish and Swedish kings and stewards of the realms. Kastelhoma was expanded and enhanced several times.

In the end of 16th century castle was owned by the previous queen Catherine Jagellon (Stenbock), an enemy of the King of Sweden Eric XIV. King Eric conquered Kastelholma in 1599 and all defending officers were taken to Turku and executed. The castle was damaged under the siege and it took 30 years to renovate it.

In 1634 Åland was joined with the County of Åbo and Björneborg and Kastelholma lost its administrative status.
