Mazes, puzzles and Kit Williams.Plan to visit Dragonfly Maze and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Bourton-on-the-Water attractions using our Bourton-on-the-Water itinerary builder app .
Three things which had intrigued us for many years.
The Dragonfly Maze brought these interests together and allowed us to share them with everyone else.
THE MAZE -
Planting yew hedges we created a traditional maze with about half a mile of pathways.
THE PUZZLE -
Fourteen clues dotted around the pathways of The Maze. Only when these are found are you able to crack our rebus puzzle and find The Golden Dragonfly hidden in the round house at the centre of The Maze.
KIT WILLIAMS -
Artist and author, Kit wrote and illustrated "Masquerade" published in 1979. Kit had made and buried a Golden Hare somewhere in the UK. The secret location could be discovered within the story and paintings of the book.
We were unsuccessful "Masqueraders". However we loved it so much we asked Kit to help us with our idea so he designed and created the beautiful centre piece for our maze. The central house, the ceramic tiles, the mirrored cabinet and the bronze "Minotoad".
Afterwards take a look around our gift shop "Amaze'N'Things" filled with traditional toys, puzzles and gifts.
