Police uncover secret cannabis farm at Legoland Windsor

Fun for all the family

A secret weed farm – made up of over 50 cannabis plants – has been uncovered inside a derelict cottage in Legoland Windsor. 

The bizarre discovery was found during routine “asbestos” checks by theme park staff on Monday (February 6). The plants were reportedly set up with lights and watering equipment, and stood at around three feet in height. 

While not technically located within the theme park’s boundary, the “farm” was found on land that Legoland owns. According to a spokeswoman for the theme park, it mysteriously appeared to have been accessed via the Crown Estate – otherwise known as Windsor Castle, home of Queen Elizabeth II. 

Two men, aged 40 and a 34, have been arrested on suspicion of producing the drug, and have now been bailed until February 28. Police are still looking into the discovery. “We will continue to support their ongoing investigation,” the Legoland spokeswoman told the Scotsman

The secret farm was uncovered 18 months after police uncovered a “football pitch-sized” forest of cannabis plants in Kingston, London – less than 20 miles from the Legoland cottage. While the cultivators were never caught, the area was found “a few streets away from a university halls of residence and a sixth-form college.”
