Work has started at the University of Kent on what is billed as the first labyrinth to be situated on an English university campus. The university has commissioned researcher and designer Jeff Saward to construct the labyrinth, which will be used as a teaching and learning resource. Based on medieval designs, the labyrinth will be constructed on the university grounds overlooking Canterbury Cathedral. Louise Naylor, head of the Unit for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching, called the labyrinth, which is scheduled for completion in mid-August, "an innovative work of art which will provide opportunity for personal reflection". The labyrinth, which will be completely flat, will be created using reinforced grass and Yorkstone, the same material as the ancient pavements in Canterbury.
