A unique daffodil labyrinth has been created in Tresillian Churchyard using more than 2,000 daffodils.

Andrew Nicholson from Random Acts of Wonder created the labyrinth, which is 18 metres in diameter, using six different varieties of bulb supplied by Fentongollan.

A labyrinth, unlike a maze, has no dead ends and features a single meandering path to the centre, designed to take you on a symbolic journey.

Labyrinths are common to a number of ancient cultures and have been used in the Christian tradition for prayer and contemplation for many centuries. The most famous example is the labyrinth within the medieval cathedral of Chartres in France.

The aim of the project was to provide a beautiful space where people have time to reflect as they follow the meandering path through the daffodils and journey to the centre.

Over Easter, Andrew has added a guided reflection linking the events of Easter with people’s experience of living through lockdown and Covid-19 during the last year.

He said: “I am pleased with how this has all come out. It made those days of digging through the mud in the rain before Christmas all worthwhile!

“It’s great to hear how people how people have been enjoying this – it’s quite a therapeutic experience following this path through all these daffodils.”

Andrew has been creating labyrinth installations for more than ten years, mainly on beaches in Cornwall, which are walked as a means of contemplation.
