Contest #373 Answer: Castlewellan Peace Maze

Castlewellan Forest park’s ‘Peace Maze’ was commissioned in 1998 and in 2000 and 2001 over 4000 school children and 1000 people attended community planting days to plant the maze’s 6000 yew trees.

The design for the maze was conceived by Beverley Lear of Lear Associates who used the best idea’s from thousands of children’s designs that were submitted at the time.

The maze is one of Northern Irelands fastest growing tourist attractions, with over 240,000 visits between the opening date in September 2001 and June 2004.
The whole maze covers nearly 3 acres and has 2.18 miles of pathway.



Until 2007 the Peace Maze was the largest permanent hedge maze in the world and held the guinness world record. The current record holder is the ‘Pineapple Garden Maze’ in Hawaii with 2.46 miles of pathway.

Upon solving the maze there is a bell to ring at the centre. This bell is considered to be one of the most frequently rung bells in Ireland, with over half a million rings every year.

Contest # 372 Answer: Meyer Wrift Shipyards, Papenberg, Germany

Meyer Wrift is a manufacturer of ships, including some of the largest cruise ships. The factory is 26 miles from the sea along the river Ems, and the size of the ships makes their initial journey of the seas (referred to as “Conveyence”), well, interesting to say the least. At certain points in the journey, the ship has a clearance of less than 2 feet on either side.

CELEBR

Meyer Wrift published a youtube video with highlights of the conveyance of Celebrity’s Quantum of the Seas last September.
