I cannot claim to have seen this maze myself, since the chapel in which it is located is not open to visitors. My diagram is copied from a postcard (on sale in the cathedral).
I am very grateful to Jo Edkins for pointing out that, with the minor alterations illustrated here, this maze can be turned into a double standard one.
