The Labyrinth in the Chapel is of the pattern called the Chartres Labyrinth, from the 13th Century example in Chartres Cathedral, France. It is a complex series of circular pathways embossed with a four-axis cross motif. This pattern arose in modified formats in several French Gothic cathedrals, but the Chartres pattern is commonly held to be the most beautiful and aesthetically 'pure'.
Whether you are new to it or a regular visitor, the Labyrinth is great for meditation and prayer, bringing calmness and healing to our busy lives. You will be walking to gentle music, in candlelight, in your socks or barefoot (we ask people to remove their shoes, to protect the canvas of the Labyrinth). There's no right or wrong speed for walking the Labyrinth; you'll go at the speed that feels right for you and there are cushions to sit on to allow you to take your time in experiencing the peacefulness. (There is also a chair for anybody who would find getting to the floor difficult).
It usually takes about 30 minutes to walk the Labyrinth, so please ensure you leave plenty of time for your walk.
Labyrinth walks are offered monthly on a Wednesday between 7 pm and 9 pm (last walk 8.30 pm) and are free.
Due to the quiet meditative pace, these events are for adults only.
