Thanks to Mike and his brother for details and photographs of this very tall Giant Redwood. He says that "This wellingtonia at a place called the Glenthorne Pinetum, and I think it might be a contender for tallest redwood in the UK. The man standing at the base of the tree is 5' 7"."

You may well be correct Mike, I did a very rough measurement of it (using Method 1 on the Measuring page) and estimated it to be around 160 feet, over 48 metres high! I have only ever measured one higher than this and that was in the New Forest. I will have to arrange to take a hike along the North Somerset coast sometime in the future.
