The Westmorland Gazette: Huge poppy to mark anniversary of WW1 carved into popular South Lakeland visitor attraction Huge poppy to mark anniversary of WW1 carved into popular South Lakeland visitor attraction

A POPULAR South Lakeland visitor attraction is paying its own tribute to mark the anniversary of the start of the First World War.

The Lakeland Maize Maze, at Sedgwick, near Kendal, has made the 150 metre by 175 metre poppy emblem its design for 2014.

The attraction has carved out the intricacy of the poppy’s petals in a maize crop that is currently growing ready for opening on July 19.

The attraction was the Maize Maze of the Year in both 2011 and 2013 and expects over 18,000 visitors to walk through its poppy design this year.

"Our poppy design is the most poignant we have had as the theme for our maze and we hope that families will reflect on the sacrifices made by great-great grandparents and other relatives who perhaps fought in World War 1," said owner Graham Wadsworth.
