Finn's Labyrinth

Art In Whitburn, Tyne And Wear

A circular labyrinth made out of a selection of stones in memory of a dog.

On a wander from Souter Lighthouse down The Leas, we were just about to turn back when we noticed something on the map called Finn's Labyrinth. It was a new one to us, so obviously headed off to investigate.

Finn's Labyrinth is a concentric stone circle labyrinth that is a tribute to a much loved dog. With a diameter of around 30m, it was created by Sean Hesa in 2015 with stones collected from a variety of places.

Located on Jackie's Beach in Whitburn it is best viewed from the coastal path, or even better from the air!

We found Sean on Facebook, dropped him a message and he kindly sent us some photos of Finn! He also regularly tidies and maintains the labyrinth too.

What a beautiful tribute.

Look out for these little steps if you want to head down to the beach to investigate further.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue pele tower up a remote hill, a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
