Alkborough, Julian's Bower
The turf maze known as Julian's Bower lies on the edge of the escarpment at Alkborough, about 7 miles north of Scunthorpe (grid reference SE880217).
Its origin is unknown, the earliest reference being by local antiquary Abraham de la Pryme in 1697.
Beyond the maze the photo shows the flooded Alkborough Flats and Trent Falls, where the rivers Trent and Ouse merge to form the Humber.
See Pevsner: The Buildings of England - Lincolnshire. Also De la Pryme diary online via www.archive.org, which says that the maze was called 'Troy Town'.
