Farmer builds massive Harry Potter maze!


With the final Harry Potter film coming out this week there are plenty of Potter stories going around, but none so better than this!

A farmer in York has turned his entire field of crops into a Harry Potter-shaped maze!

The farmer Tom Pearcy has cut out two portraits of Harry Potter into his crop of maize to create the world’s largest spot the difference competition.

Over 50m wide and cut out of over 1 million maize plants it’s one of the biggest maize mazes in the world.

So what was Tom’s reason for doing this?

“I’m a big fan of Harry Potter and the release of the final film this summer marks the end of an era. I wanted to do something imaginative to say farewell to Harry, so creating the biggest image of him ever made and making it a spot the difference competition seemed like an interesting way to do that.”
