These four Giant Sequoia stand at a fairly busy junction along Reepham Road.
Unfortunately one of the four trees seems to be in fairly poor condition, with a large proportion of its foliage gone along one side.
It is not clear what could have caused this but the most probable reason is a lightning strike sometime in the recent past.
