Alan Titchmarsh to open maze at Cliveden

TV presenter and gardener Alan Titchmarsh will open the recreated maze at the National Trust's Cliveden on Friday 8 April.

Titchmarsh, whose new ITV gardening series begins in June, will be joined at the Buckinghamshire estate by William Waldorf Astor, 4th Viscount Astor, great grandson of the 1st Viscount Astor who created the original maze in 1894.

That maze remained in existence for fewer than 30 years. The new maze, as close as possible to the site of the original, is made up of more than 1,100 two-metre-high yew trees, and has taken two years to construct.
