The Maze, Chevening
The Maze, Chevening
Designed in 1820 by Philip Stanhope, the Fourth Earl of Stanhope, whose seat was here at Chevening. The Earl was a mathematician, and was the first maze designer to realise that by including islands in his designs, those who used the "hand on wall" approach to solving a maze could be confounded. His maze here at Chevening is an example of this "insoluble" design.
