The Dry Stone Wall Maze in the heart of Dalby Forest.

 

When finished, the outer most wall will measure eighty metres square, the walls will stand two metres high, consist of over 4000 tonnes of stone & take approximately three years to complete.

 

 

Visitors will follow a short path through the forest to the maze entrance, which will be flanked by two enormous, ten foot tall standing stones.

 

The maze has been aligned with the sunrise on the Summer Solstice, and from its centre the sun can be seen rising between these two standing stones. Special stone features traditionally found in field and garden walls
across the North Yorkshire Moors and Dales such as: stone step stiles, squeeze stiles, smout holes, kissing gates, phantom gates and moon gates, will be incorporated within the walls of the maze to not only showcase
the waller’s craft, but also to conspire, mislead, hinder, challenge and assist visitors of all ages along their journey to the goal – the centre of the maze.
