If visiting West Suffolk, the Nowton park maze is worth a visit. It is something freely accessible, suitable for the whole family. I had a great day exploring it in the sunshine”.

Why should you read? Hello readers, and happy Friday! What could be more fitting than a summer day trip summary from a short adventure I had earlier this year, to get you in that weekend spirit! This will be the second in a series where we outline some adventures we’ve had earlier in the year. Please comment with your thoughts and any relatable experiences, and follow and like if you enjoy:)

Introduction

Escaping placement

I hope you’ve managed to enjoy some of the very hot weather over the summer, if staying in the UK. At this time, I handed back my ID and padlock to my placement provider, since recently I made the final decision to not return to that placement. It wasn’t going well, and wasn’t the best use of my time.

After returning those bits and pieces, I then proceeded to search for Nowton park, as the internet told me they have a maze there.

Nowton park explore

On park arrival, I wasn’t sure where the maze was, and was greeted by a car-park and some dog walkers. I then saw some signs with footprints and coloured labels, similar to what you find in most forests and parks which have various difficulty levels for walking trails.

I followed the red route on my bike, until I met a dog walker, who I avoided through the woods, darting on subsequent encounters between various coloured sections.

Odd man

I then dinged my bell a fair distance away from an elderly man, who surprised me greatly with his response …

He turned his head to look at me, before running with a tilted skip about 15-20 meters diagonally to his right. He then stopped, turned, and held his hands behind his back. Next, he creepily watched me slowly cycle past him, to which I awkwardly responded “Thank you”.

Round in circles

I then saw a panda statue, like you do in a field in Bury St Edmunds, before continuing on until I reached the entrance again.

I felt like leaving because I had no idea where the maze was, assuming I’d somehow missed it, distracted by dog walkers and energetic, yet senile, old men.

Since I’m not one to give up however, I decided to check the sign again, to see if a colour was labelled with a maze or anything. I was a-“maze”-d to see, that actually it was a different sign to the one I encountered in a near identical setting earlier, incredibly labelled “maze”, alongside a right-pointing arrow.

Whilst I wasn’t quite sure how it was a different sign to earlier, I followed it in the hope of finding the maze. I then passed some sheep, before reaching another sign which said maze was where I’d just come from.

I finally turned around, and sure enough, halfway back on my right was the maze!

The maze was paradoxically harder to find, than complete…

Summary

“If visiting West Suffolk, the Nowton park maze is worth a visit. It is something freely accessible, suitable for the whole family. I had a great day exploring it in the sunshine”.

Closing statement 

Reaseaorg blog is working on its content to enhance viewer experience. Over the previous few years, we have been gaining momentum until recently, and are currently looking at ways to continue to improve user experience of our blog.

We deeply thank all 74 of our followers, especially those who are still reading at this point in this article. You really do shape our content, and maintain our focus on producing content which appeals to our audience. Based on WordPress insights, we have learnt that certain types of product reviews are most popular. Fortunately, all recent blog posts appear to have increased in popularity considerably, regardless of the focus topic of the article. This is a real improvement, which will help to vary future content.

Please feel free to advertise related content in the comments below, but all I ask is that you please be respectful. I have had some comments in the previous few months, which have gone against the spirit of my blog.

That is to be a friendly place for fans of Horror, movies, drinks, and adventures, and particularly those who are interested in writing or reading engaging content.

It is not a place for those who posted links of an explicit nature, reducing visibility of helpful comments, providing insight for my future blog writing.

I thank all of those who have liked my articles, but I won’t ask you to press like on any of my content, unless you do actually like it, as it helps me to gather further accurate information about the types of articles you, the reader, actually would like to see moving forward. 

Please comment below with ideas for future content, or any thoughts not covered by the points outlined above.

I will continue to post this statement on articles to come, to ensure optimal visibility for viewers. A big thank you to Neil Patel, for producing a helpful video on search engine optimisation (SEO), to assist my content popularity. I hope it helps anyone else who has content online to get their voice heard, be it through writing or video, or other creative forms of expression online. 

Based on insights gained, I have increased my blog content article length, introduced a “food for thought” section to encourage creator-viewer engagement, introduced a “why you should read” tag-line under each article title, added a closing statement which will be used on future articles for the same purpose of updating you on how the blog is progressing, and increased content from my critical eye.

    1. Indeed, that was the main take home I think. If you are looking for a simple maze, it may not be so easy … Thanks so much for reading with your time. Many people are commenting on the old man and tbh I do remember that quite vividly. He was certainly odd whichever way you take it.

  1. Personally I am always interested in reviews of travel destinations and local adventures. I’ve been to the UK a few times but it’s been in business or stop over. When you are traveling in business you don’t have much time to see and experience things but I certainly would like to visit as a real tourist too. Perhaps the old man you encountered had a mental illness? Thank you for an interesting read.

    1. He may well have done. I think that is likely … Either that or just a very strange character 🙂 and I completely relate. Don’t often get much further than hotel reviewing due to work time commitment etc. This was based on a break I was lucky to get …

  2. I filled out your Food for Thought in the last one … so just wanted to comment to say, it would have been great to see a photo of the maze, and to read a little section on you actually being in it, what it was like and how long it took you, being as the blog was about the maze. Overall, engaging read. Great piece!

    1. Thanks so much for your thorough engagement here and useful feedback. You are totally right the article was more around finding the maze than completing it, so may have been more appropriate for a different title …

    1. Yes definitely it wasn’t really forgetting. I wanted the trip to be the highlight. I intended to find the maze easily but realised the adventure was in the journey there more than the experience of the maze. Your point does apply since I titled it based on the maze experience rather than the journey which I focused on due to it being the most interesting part. I had a good day and am very happy with the reception of the article. I really appreciate you taking an interest 🙂
