Warwick Davis and Sam get shown around The Maize Maze in Cawthorne

As a vertically-challenged man Warwick Davis may not be the best qualified to lead a search in a maze.

But the TV star, who was born with dwarfism, is nothing if not game.

And, although the rain came down, he and his wife Sam had fun guiding their children around the Maize Maze at Cawthorne.

In April, Weekend Escapes with Warwick Davis will be screened on ITV1.

The programme sees Warwick and his family – wife Sam, and children Annabelle, 17, and Harrison, 11, travel around the UK during the summer holidays.

In each programme the family visit tourist attractions and meet local groups and visitors.

A heavy shower greeted their arrival but the couple had fun with walkie talkies and the help of a heli-drone guiding their children around the Maize Maze marvelling at proprietor Sarah Williams’ son David’s skill in designing such a clever puzzle.

This year’s puzzle Le Tour Racer, celebrating cycling in Yorkshire, has been a great success, said Sarah who began working on the maze in 2001.

She said: “They all had a great time despite the weather. We put bales on the bridge for them to stand on to help them see better and direct the children.

“They enjoyed their time with us and we waved them off in their camper van. They said they were heading up to Edinburgh for their next TV adventure.”

There are only two more weeks of the main season and the weekends in September before the maize plants will be cut down and fed to the cows.

“As well as finding their way around the maze lots of visitors have enjoyed tractor rides up to the farm with David to see the calves and learn more about a working family dairy farm, added Sarah.
