Two impressive maize mazes open tomorrow either side of the Suffolk/Norfolk border.

The Hundred River Indian Eagle Maize Maze just off the B1127 at Hulver Street offers family fun for everyone.

There is a chance to meet and handle the owls from the Owl Sanctuary and feed the animals at 10.30am each day.

Visitors can also use their navigational skills to find the points of interest hidden within the trail and each week there is a draw to win a free entry.

Other attractions include ride-on toys, a mini maze for young children, tunnels to climb through and a slide.

When participants return to the Hundred River Camp there is a wide range of refreshments available from the special catering wagon including beefburgers from the farm’s own Hereford beef cattle and ice cream freshly made from the farm’s dairy herd.

The maze is open daily from 10am to 5pm and parking is free.

A few miles away on the B1132 Bungay to Norwich road the Hedenham Maize Maze also opens tomorrow.

This year’s maze is the biggest ever and the maize is the tallest it has ever been.

The theme of the maze this year is the First World War with a war horse to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the war.

Also new this year is an on site cafe selling a wide range of local produce.

The maze is open daily from 10am to 6pm until September 1.
