The Original Great Maze 2018

The Original Great Maze 2018 is opening at Blake House Craft Centre for the Summer season.

This massive annual maize maze will be opening to the public on Saturday 21st July with an amazing new maze design and is set to welcome visitors daily from 10am (last entry at 4pm) until 9th September. 

Each year sees an all new design, providing a fresh challenge for visitors to come along and get lost in! With inspiration previously ranging from tractors to peacocks, this year once again gives a nod to our great farming heritage, with the 2018 design being based on a wheatsheaf. Miles of pathways are cut out of the maize crop forming the design, but only one way will get you out!
Over the summer, visitors will take their journey through the twists and turns of this traditional symbol of agricultural life. Puzzling their way through the maize, there will also be a lost animals competition, with the opportunity to win £100, with all correct answer sheets going into a prize draw at the end of the season. A lost souls escape map is available for a returnable deposit if unopened and a viewing platform is found at the end of your adventure, once you have conquered the maze, enabling victors to spot friends still lost in the green labyrinth.
Despite concerns over the lack of rain in the season prior to opening, the maze has been growing slowly but surely and though it will not be fully grown when first open, this is a great opportunity for those who prefer to make the maze challenge a little easier. Later in the season with rain and more growth, it will provide a greater challenge for the more experienced maze adventurers.
This remains one of the largest and longest running mazes in the UK, covering 10 acres and using over half a million maize seeds and provides a fun day out for the family, or a competitive challenge for the experienced maze enthusiast.
