Milton Maize Maze pays tribute to moon landings 50 years ago
Visitors to the Milton Maize Maze are in for a lunar treat as the attraction is celebrating 50 years since man’s first moon landing.
Rob Chapman and his team at Rectory Farm have made the maze in the shape of a huge astronaut, with Earth in the distance behind him. Visitors will have to find their way out of the huge puzzle.
The maize was planted in April and the paths cut when it was just a few inches high. Throughout the summer the maize plants will grow to at least 7ft, making it tricky for families to navigate.
Marilyn Chapman, who runs the farm with husband Rob, said: “It’s really exciting to be able to celebrate the anniversary of the moon landing in this special way.”
The maize maze opens today (July 19) and will run through to September 3, offering family entertainment seven days a week, 10am till 6pm.
Prices are £10.95 for 16s and over; £9.95 for 3-15 year-olds while under 3s go free. Student and OAPs with ID are £10.50 while a family ticket is £46 for two adults and three children; or one adult with four children.
