Christopher Williamson said: “The Maize Maze is situated within a few yards of the Hawkstone Park Follies Visitor Centre, and will take around 1½ to 2 hours to complete. It will be open for three months this summer. It promises to be a great opportunity for families to enjoy a day out in beautiful countryside, and to have some super fun. Children will really enjoy finding ‘their favourite farm animal’ with cartoon characters Linford Crispy (The Pig!); Ready Steady Goat; David Peckham; Seb Cow, and Fatima Thoroughbred to delight them! They will be able to enjoy a Children’s Obstacle Course (with Cargo Netting, giant dice, slalom poles, hurdles ) to provide some fun activity and also receive a certificate at the end. We have free parking; a Picnic Area (so bring some lunch!), and there are refreshments and facilities at the Follies Visitor Centre.
There are also full hotel facilities at the nearby Hawkstone Park Hotel. As for the maze, well I’ve got to say it’s truly amazing! It features a cow design that will attempt to outwit visitors! Admission is £5.50 for adults and children £4.50. Visitors pay £1 for an optional sealed envelope which contains the solution to solving the puzzle! If returned unopened the £1 is refunded.
Our Education Officer will be contacting schools and will be on hand to help school parties, and organised groups of young people, such as Scouts, Youth Clubs and so on, who will be offered a discount. Full information can be found at www.maizemaze.org and we are also on Facebook. (Facebook address is The Maize Maze at Hawkstone Park Follies. As an added attraction there will be displays of birds of prey, including owls and hawks by Feather Perfect in front of the Visitor Centre. We have already received lots of enquiries to our website at www.maizemaze.org where people can find more details”.
