Maze

Want to try something a bit different then why not go to Hazlehead Maze and see if you can find your way around it. Did you know? . Hazlehead Maze is a privet hedge maze, which is 135ft by 100ft and was built by Sir Henry Alexander. The worlds largest permanent maze is in Hawaii covering 100,000 square feet, and the longest path is 1.7 miles long. A maze having only one entrance and one exit can be solved by placing one hand against either wall and keeping it there while walking forward, the exit can always be reached this way as well!
