Edward Gowler and his team at Skylark Garden Centre haven painstakingly cut over 3km of pathways in their 12 acre field of maize plants.

The paths have been carefully cut out using GPS technology and when viewed form the air the shapes of Buzz Lightyear and Woody are revealed.

The paths also form a maze for visitors to get lost in. The images of Buzz & Woody are over 150 metres (500 feet) tall and are believed to be the biggest Toy Story images ever created.
