Amazing maise maze

HE can usually be seen filling TV screen, but this a-maze-ing replica of Sean the Sheep takes up an entire field.

Although the kids’ TV favourite is made from clay, this 14-acre labyrinth is constructed from maize.

Situated at the National Forest Adventure Farm (NFAF) near Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, it might even prove a challenge for the clever sheep, who is known for his human-like intelligence.

Visitors to the attraction – one of Europe’s biggest mazes – are required to enter its ten-foot-high walls via Sean’s feet before navigating the length of his body and exiting via his head.

As well as his trademark floppy ears and distinctive facial features, the design also features the slogan “EWE’LL BE AMAZED” alongside Sean.

Brothers Tom and Ivor Robinson, owners of the NFAF, choose a different theme each year for their popular Maize Maze.

Tom Robinson said: “Shaun is such a well-loved character with appeal to all ages.

“He was the natural choice to feature in our maize maze this year to celebrate the opening of the new National Forest Adventure Farm.”

Shaun the Sheep was devised by Aardman Animations, the creators of Wallace & Gromit.

And the maze has even received the stamp of approval from Sean’s creator, Richard Starzak.

He said: “I’m delighted that Shaun is now in a field of his own.

“Shaun has made a few marks on the landscape, but none as spectacular as this.

“It looks wonderful and I can’t wait to visit with my family.”

Visitors to the Sean maze will be given a ‘quiz trail sheet’ when they enter.

As well as helping Sean to find his friend Timmy, they will also be able to search for other characters from the popular Children’s BBC series.

The first maize maze was opened at the site in 2004.

Previous designs have included a Beach-inspired maze, a Wild West version and an Indiana Jones-themed maze.
