Ridgeway Farm, on Peel Road, has already become established as a petting farm for visitors, complete with cafe.

Now the farm, which has been run by the Kirkham family for eight generations, has expanded its horizons by opening the new feature, aptly called Maize Maze.

The attraction opened just last week.

Helen Chappell, part of the Kirkham family, said: “It ticks all the boxes because we can still use the land for growing our crops while bringing in extra revenue during the summer.

"We have two mazes, a smaller for very young children and a much bigger which takes at least two hours to get through, so it’s a proper day out.”
