The site for this project was the historic churchyard of SS Mary and John Church on the Cowley Road, which is underwent a regeneration process after a long period of neglect and misuse. It is known as the ‘Green Lung’ of East Oxford and people are being encouraged to use the grounds as a quiet space for rest and reflection.
 
The labyrinth symbolises unity and eternity and each tile contains historical and personal references made by the many participants who took part in the project.
 
Groups who took part in its creation include The Learning Centre, Oxford Survivors, Gemini, Acorn, the Third Monday Group, Oasis and the Warneford Hospital as well as members of the parish congregation.
