There are two Giant Redwoods at the Mansion House Rest Home, Burnham Road. The first tree stands immediately in front of the building, while the second is by the fence. The latter has had a lightning strike and is rather hidden among other trees, although it does seem to have added some foliage in the four years between the two photographs.
