According to mkweb.co.uk

Willen Maze is a turf maze based on an enlarged version of the Saffron Walden Rosicrucian Maze and designed by landscape architect Neil Higson. At its centre is an oak tree and in each of the four lobes – at the cardinal points of the compass – is a bronze face designed by the sculptor Tim Minett. The four bronze faces represent the four main races of mankind and are inspired by the faces on teh artist’s bollards in the Shopping Centre. The maze unifies them in peace and places them in the context of dominant nature, symbolised by the oak tree.
