Another maze. This one is set in the grass - it has a small brick pathway set into the grass for the youngsters to follow round! And you can't even lose them! Great idea, take a picnic and enjoy!

A fun activity when visiting Saffron Walden common. The children's park is nearby too. Make sure you read the plaque at the start of the maze to discover its amazing history. A good way to tire out the kids while you watch!
