At the top off the cliffs above the fishing port of Looe ramblers will find a "seven-fold labyrinth" constructed by a local landowner.

The South West Coast Path, which overlooks St George’s Island, was the stopping point for Joseph of Arimathea and his nephew Jesus on their way to Glastonbury, according to local legend.

Caroline Petherick, has spent the past year creating the "crop circle with Celtic twist".

The 60 foot wide spiral pattern was inspired by a similar design at Tintagel on the north Cornish coast and is said to originate from Palaeolithic times.

It took two days to move the 14 tonnes of soil and grass and cost about £500 to build.

Ms Petherick, who describes herself as a "wordsmith" does not ask for payment but there is a tip box for donations beside information about the pattern’s significance.

A keen dowser, Ms Petherick chose the location for the quartz and slate standing stone after using divining rods to find the intersection between two "energy lines".

She said: "You can go and sit there and realise the earth isn’t such a bad place after all. It’s a gentle pleasure for people to enjoy."
