“Finger Maze” by Phillip Chatfield
Carved in Ancaster Stone.
Phillip Chatfield was employed as a sculptor in residence in Margam Park. He is a stone carver and produced this piece originally to be sited in the centre of the impressive the hedge maze. This feature of the Park has now gone, and a decision was made to re-site in its present position just in front of the Castle. The sculpture has references to some of the grave-stones to be found in the Abbey grounds, and contains some interesting relief images around the edges of the sculpture.
The finger maze can be seen alongside the path that follows the Ha Ha from the Orangery to the Castle.
