Help us keep Glendurgan's maze forever puzzling

The maze at Glendurgan in Cornwall was planted in 1833 for a family with 12 children. It was never envisaged that around 90,000 people would walk its winding paths each year. We need to improve the infrastructure and health of the maze to make it more robust so it can cope with the volume of visitors it receives each year. Here is how you can help.
