For 8 weeks every summer the National Forest Adventure Farm opens it’s maize maze. You can take on the challenge of navigating 10 acres of twisting paths, bridges and viewing towers. The design and theme change every year, in 2015 we celebrated 70 years of famous Staffordshire manufacturer JCB.
The maze field is drilled in April after the threat of frost has gone. In May when the plants are between 10-20cm high, the design is marked out using GPS technology and the pathways are cut out. The maize will grow to over 8 feet (2.4m) high!
