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!

I hadn't even realised this was there and we were waiting for friends (and needed the steps) so we decided to walk the maze and it was quite fun. It's not really a maze in the more widely-understood sense in that there's only one route...More
