DID YOU KNOW??
Maize is a tropical plant which grows to heights of 7ft tall or more if aided by the perfect weather conditions so let's hope for lots of sunshine and a little rain!!Why not test your navigational skills by moonlight on one of our 'Torchlight Nights' run on selected evenings throughout the Summer...but don't forget your torch!

Torchlight Nights
Bring along your torches and venture into the Maize Maze to complete the quizzes by moonlight. With the added difficulty of the darkness our torchlight nights have a great atmosphere with hot food available to purchase during the evening.

7.30pm - 10pm (last entry 8.30pm).

The History of Millets Maze
Starting in 1997 Millets Maize Maze certainly made itself known with people visiting from far and wide to try out the UK's first and World Record Holding Maize Maze. With 3.73 miles of pathway and covering almost eight acres it took some visitors 4 hours to complete it!

A maze cut into maize means that unfortunately it must be harvested at the end of the summer and the crop is fed to the cattle. However this does provide a perfect opportunity for us to create a new maze every year.

So far we have had a Windmill (97) a Dragon (98) a Pirates Ship (99) a Woodland theme (2000) a Space Rocket (01) a Jungle theme (02) a Whale (03) a Dinosaur (04) Battle of Trafalgar (05) Around the world in 80 days (06) Magical Maze (07) Egyptian (08) Robot (09) Clown (10) Alice in Wonderland (11) an Olympic rowing boat (12) Cornley our maze mascot (13) Food (14) and WWII (15).

The creation of the maize maze
The maize is planted in April to ensure it reaches it full height ready for the maze opening in July. Once we have designed the maze we cut the pathways and with plenty of sunshine and rain we cross our fingers that the maize reaches over 6ft tall in time for opening.
