A farm has created a huge three-mile Halloween-themed maze using 250,000 seeds and GPS technology, write Chris Dyer and Oliver Kemp.

Maze Moon in Rainham, Kent, planted maize in the shape of a pumpkin as an outdoor challenge to visitors who have been stuck indoors during the coronavirus lockdown.

Paths have also been made wider to allow more space for social distancing. Drone footage shows the intricate design of the pumpkin maze.

The farm, best known for their pick-your-own pumpkin fields in October, have used 250,000 seeds and GPS technology to create the enormous maze.

The three miles of tracks were created out of planted maize and offer a challenge for families looking to get an early Halloween fix.

James Kemsley, farm manager, wanted to create a fun summer activity for families after the effects of lockdown meant people were stuck inside for so long.

He said: "We've tried to offer something for people which is also safe, and we've made wider pathways than normal to allow for social distancing."

The project used a whopping 70,000 seeds per hectare to create the intricate pumpkin design and the surrounding maze corridors.

Families are also invited to take part in their "pumpkin pile-up" game whilst they attempt to make their way to the centre.
