2016’s amazing crop allowed us to open the Day Maize Maze during August 2016…

But September will see the return of the ‘Spooky Night Maize Maze’

We hope to run this to middle of October weather permitting.

1 track in & 1 track out…..will you choose the correct path or will you be lost in the deep dark depth of the Maize Maze!!!!

With more dead ends and mind confusing paths this is sure to be the best Maize Maze to date!!!!
