Stuart Beare has turned an eight-acre field of maize plants at Tulleys Farm near Turners Hill into a giant maze of pathways which, when viewed from the air, forms a giant image inspired by the Dory and Nemo films.

Stuart said: “My eight-year-old daughter Ella adores the Finding Nemo films, and when she heard the new Finding Dory film was due out this summer she begged me to design a maize maze as tribute.

“I just hope our visitors have a better memory for the way out than Dory or they may be in there all day!”

Children from Pound Hill Junior School, Crawley, explore the maze with Dory balloons in tow SUS-160719-160236001

The Tulley’s Farm Maize Maze is a challenge for all ages. Visitors have to navigate the four miles of pathways to find the fishes’ characters hidden around the maze for a chance to win a prize.

As well as the giant maize maze, Tulleys Farm also offers visitors logic puzzles, giant games, illusions, and mini mazes. There is Adventure Play with giant slide, trampolines, tractor rides, quad barrel train, farmers golf and frisbee golf.

The Tulleys Maze opens to visitors daily from Saturday (July 23) to Sunday September 4 when the maize will be harvested.
