A Winner of Leicestershire's "Best Visitor Attraction"

Winner of Trip Advisor's 2016 Excellence Award

The maze is now CLOSED.

It will re-open in July 2017 with a new design and quiz trail.

The draw has taken place for our Quiz Trail Competition, and the winners will be notified today of their prizes, which have kindly been donated by CURVE Theatre who have a production of Roald Dahl's "The Twits" in December.

For 2016, to mark the centenary of Roald Dahl's birth, the maze was designed in the shape of the "BFG" (Big Friendly Giant), and the Quiz Trail will be themed on Classic Children's Books and their Authors.

Being an agricultural field please wear appropriate clothing and footwear, and after rain wellies are advisable as the maths do get muddy!

With the unpredictable weather in England, there are occasions when we have to close the maze early or not open at all due to Health & Safety. If bad weather is forecast do please call 07884 403889 on the day to check. If we do have to close we will write it on this Home Page at the earliest opportunity.
