Builth Wells - Cae Castell (Powys) |
The owner of the garden where one of these six Wellingtonia stand, mentioned that they are all that is left of an avenue that once stretched down the hillside. They are now an integral part of the new houses that have been built along this road. The helpful owner also told us that some years his tree is so laden with cones that the branches are pulled down with the weight of them, but this was not the case in 2008. |
