One of the labyrinths in Chaldon Firestone Mines - photo Jeff Saward/Labyrinthos

Address:
Chaldon, Surrey
England
view map
Directions/notes:
Five chalked labyrinths were discovered deep underground in 1979 in the ancient Merstham/Chaldon firestone mines, Surrey, UK. They are in what is known as the no.9 series, and likely date from the first half of the 18th century, together with other dated graffiti in the same vicinity. It is believed that they were drawn by visitors rather than miners. For more information see the "Chaldon Labyrinths" article on the website below.
Web:
http://www.labyrinthos.net/labyrinthosarchive.html
Schedule:
These labyrinths are located underground in an abandoned stone quarry and require the services of skilled cavers to guide visitors to the location. Under no circumstances consider trying to enter the mine system without expert guidance and the correct safety proceedures.

Directions/notes:
10 miles SE of Oxford, not far from M40 motorway. The labyrinth was cut into the grass of the churchyard extension in May 2009. The outline shows in simple form, the shape of a scallop shell. The choice of shape is deliberate. The scallop has been symbolic of Christian pilgrimage since medieval times - a period in history when the interior walls of St. Mary's Church were being decorated with beautiful paintings depicting the stories of Jesus, and Mary his mother.
