This year Cammas Hall Farm is also offering the opportunity to visit when it's dark.

Pumpkin Nights will run each Wednesday and Saturday during the final three weeks of October, giving customers the opportunity to ramp up the fear factor ahead of Halloween.

The Maize Maze also contains two new Halloween-themed games to play in the mini-maize and main maize.

One entrance fee covers both mazes on the seven-acre site and visitors will need to navigate bridges to find the path out.

The farm has also teamed up with a local brewery, New River, to produce a pumpkin spiced ale made from the Cammas Hall crop.
