Twelve acres of Cambridgeshire countryside has been transformed into a maze which from above is in the shape of the First World War's Lord Kitchener as part of the conflict's centenary commemorations.
The Lord Kitchener Maze at Wimblington was opened by his great great niece Lady Emma Kitchener-Fellows who is married to actor novelist and director Julian Fellows ,creator of ITV's Downton Abbey.
Its first guests included children from Thomas Eaton School in Wimblington who helped plant 60,000 poppies as part of a school project.
The owners of the maize maze say visitors will have to navigate the pathways of the World War One centenary maze and find ration stamps to put in their mess tins.
The maze at Wimblington between March and Chatteris in Cambridgeshire is open until September when the maize is harvested.
