You Can Now Get Lost In A Giant Brian Blessed Maize Maze In Yorkshire

If you don’t like Brian Blessed, you can also get lost in Jeremy Clarkson and Geoffrey Boycott.

1. If you need another reason to love Yorkshire, let this be it.

From left to right, that’s Geoffrey Boycott (the Yorkshire and England cricketer), Jeremy Clarkson (the Top Gear presenter, loved by some but an incredible annoyance to others), and Brian Blessed (a national treasure and literally the world’s loudest man).

You can find the maze and try it out for yourself just off the A64 near York.

2. The detail is rather amazing.

The maze is made out of maize and was created by Tom Pearcy, a local farmer. And why is the maze made out of maize? Well, when the cows run out of grass in the winter months, the maize is used to feed the cows. During summer, when the maize grows, a new design is mowed and a new maze is opened for the public.

3. Here’s a couple of mazes from years past.

At least, I think that is Brian Blessed being delighted.
