A Shropshire country estate is offering people the perfect way to lose a few summer hours after bringing back its popular maze.

The huge maze

The Apley Farm Shop has brought back its six-acre scarecrow maze until September 30, at the venue between Telford and Bridgnorth.

Lord Hamilton, Apley Estate owner said: "It’s a great attraction at Apley Farm Shop & being farm based, it also fits in well with the Apley Estate.

"It’s one of many maize mazes around the country which are very popular not just with families, but with all age groups.

"Visitors follow a series of clues to find the maze centre, after which they can enjoy a range of other activities & food on site.”

General manager John Wesley added: “We have so much to offer this summer, why not spend the whole day at Apley Farm Shop. Don’t forget to visit the Creamery Café or Pigg’s Playbarn.

"Some may prefer to choose a picnic lunch from the Apley Delicatessen & head off on our nature trail for a real country experience.
