Blink and you miss it. Read the information board for some interesting facts and history.

One of only 8 historic turf mazes in England. If you're expecting Hampton Court Maze, you'll be disappointed; turf mazes are modest in size but of great historic interest. This one is medieval and resembles one at Chartres cathedral (though probably not a direct copy). Unfortunately it's fenced off so it's not clear if walking round it is allowed. NOT appropriate for a day out, just a view on the way to somewhere else . There's a good modern one not that far away at Lyvedon New Bield (NT) created by mowing on top of the lost original, which you can walk, and other activities plus a tea room.

Not exactly a maze

A well kept small local attraction with loads of history. Don't expect to make a full day of it.

Cháteau Comtal

The Château Comtal (Count’s Castle) is a medieval castle within the Cité of Carcassonne, the largest city in Europe with its city walls still intact. The Château Comtal has a strong claim to be called a 'Cathar Castle'. When the Catholic Crusader army arrived in 1209 they first attacked Raymond-Roger Trencavel's castrum at Bèziers and then moved on to his main stronghold at Carcassonne.

The castle with rectangular shape is separated from the city by a deep ditch and defended by two barbicans. There are six towers curtain walls.

The castle was restored in 1853 by the architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc. It was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1997.
