The JCB Maize Maze

This year we've teamed up with famous digger manufacturer, JCB, for our 12th annual maize maze!

The 10 acre maze will feature an intricate design of a huge JCB digger and include three miles of pathways, viewing towers and bridges to navigate. You can also take part in the maze trail to collect the parts needed to build a JCB. For smaller feet there will be a shorter mini maze in the shape of the JCB logo.

As well as tackling the maze, children can have fun in the JCB Construction Zone activity tent. You can try your hand at bricklaying using real bricks and mortar and smaller children can enjoy sand play with JCB toys.
