Once common throughout the British Isles and Germany, many turf labyrinths have been destroyed, but their designs are sometimes preserved in manuscripts and antiquarian texts. Labyrinthos has a considerable collection of these plans and engravings, along with plans created by Jeff Saward. A selection of these are reproduced below, along with plans and photos of turf labyrinths in Germany.


All of the images on this page (and many more besides!) are available for licenced reproduction. For details of reproduction fees and permission proceedures, send us an e-mail with details of your planned usage and format requirements. We have many more graphics and images in our archive and can produce plans and graphics to order. If you have specific requirements, please ask.
