Maize maze honours 50 year anniversary of Moon landing with giant astronaut maze

Looking for ideas for fun things to do with your kids during the remaining weeks of the summer holidays? Head for the nearest maize maze for some guaranteed fun and adventure.

This year, Lower Ladysden Farm in Kent pays homage to the 50 year anniversary of spacecraft Apollo 11 landing on the moon in 1969 with a special Lunar Landing maze. The maize maze, featuring a giant astronaut with Earth in the distance, has been cut from a large field of living maize plants.

Writing on their Facebook page, Lower Ladysden Farm said: “50 years ago Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first men to walk on the moon while Michael Collins waited for their return in Apollo 11. Is this maze him finally trying to get in on the action?”

Each year Lower Ladysden Farm uniquely plan and shape the maize field, and support at least one charity from the proceeds.

The maize usually runs from mid-July to September.
