Amazing Maze

Looks like Bali, but actually it's Cornwall
You can't beat a good maze. The first I remember experiencing was in Hampton Court, then Longleat, and more recently some good temporary ones in maize fields. But one of the best is in Glendurgan Gardens near Falmouth which we visited today.
The gardens were created in the1820s & 30s by Mr & Mrs Alfred Fox. The fact that they had twelve children probably explains not only the maze but also an unusual giant swing. 
Now inevitably owned & run by the National Trust, the gardens cascade down to the Helford River where there's a nice little beach and rocks to climb on. Perfect.
