A giant maze in the shape of an astronaut

It took gardeners at the National Forest Adventure Farm near Burton-upon-Trent, Staffs., months to grow the astronomical design to coincide with the 50th anniversary.

Organisers also flew a cuddly toy cow to the edge of space as part of the celebrations to commemorate the moon landing.

Owner Tom Robinson said: “After months of planning we’re really excited to reveal the design especially as our 16th annual maze will celebrate the achievement of those pioneering astronauts 50 years ago.”

The maze offers three miles of paths, bridges and viewing towers tracing through a ten acre maize field.
