Plymouth Volunteer Uncovers Millennium Garden Labyrinth
Plymouth Volunteer Leanne Loren spent hours on her hands and knees, meticulously uncovering the Millennium Garden Labyrinth footpath. Other volunteers help her maintain the more than 900 stones on the footpath.
Uncovering the Millennium Garden Labyrinth
Two years ago, Leanne Loren’s mission was simple, to uncover the Millennium Garden Labyrinth Footpath in Plymouth.
“I discovered over 50 stones that were completely covered up,” Loren said.
What was supposed to be a 30-hour project ended up to be about 72 hours.
Loren carved the sod off each stone with a steak knife. It took Loren about 2 months to finally unearth the walkway.
“You can only do that about 3 hours max at a time because of the repetitiveness of the task,” explained Loren.
Now, you’ll easily see about 980 stones peeking through the ground.
People from all walks of life have strolled through the winding path.
“There were a lot of people that come in during the day and use the Labyrinth, whether it’s just school kids or people that use it as a meditation,” said Loren.
Even when it’s obvious where the circular route leads, Loren showed us, it’s not about the finish line but rather the journey of getting there.
“It makes me proud that I maintained it and people appreciate that,” Loren said.
