To mark a new beginning of hope and freedom, the award winning Wistow Maze has been designed in the shape of a Phoenix rising from the flames.

The giant eight acre maize maze has a fun Quiz Trail hidden amongst its three miles of pathways. High level bridges and towers give stunning panoramic views.

Visitors have to find 12 quiz boards which will test their knowledge on other mythical creatures.

The Phoenix is often used as a symbol of recovery and renewal, which seems very appropriate for this year” explains Diana Brooks, owner of Wistow Maze. “With plenty of space, our maze offers great outdoor entertainment for young and old.
