Wistow Maze, Kibworth Road, Wed 19 July

To mark the 130th Anniversary since the first Sherlock Holmes novel was written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Wistow Maze has been designed in the shape of Sherlock himself, with a ‘Whodunnit’ themed Quiz Trail hidden amongst the 3 miles of pathways. Set in 8 acres of living maize and sunflower crop, it’s great exercise for mind and body. With high level bridges and viewing towers giving stunning panoramic views, it’s a great experience. Stop off at the Rural Centre with its large garden centre, model village, cafe/bistro, Mediterranean deli, art gallery and wide variety of shops is a brilliant place to spend a few hours.
