Bilsborrow - Myerscough College (Lancashire)
|Thanks to Nick for sending photographs of a Coast and several Giant Redwoods at his college in St. Michael's Road. Nick says, "Just thought I might update your redwood location list. Most of them seem to be in the southern counties so I took pictures of some specimens from my college arboretum at Myerscough college in Lancashire. I found 1 coast redwood and at least 3 giant redwoods. I'm not exactly sure how tall they were but I would say at least 20 metres tall. There is also a Dawn
redwood on site but it is not fully in leaf yet so was not worth sending. There are also Redwoods at Thorpe Perrow Arboretum in Yorkshire which I recently visited."
The reason for most locations on the site being from the South is that it is where I am based, but Nick is the second person to email locations of Redwoods in Lancashire recently so let us hope that more will follow.
