Giant Redwood October 2018
Fantastic photographs of the Giant Redwood (Sequoiadendron giganteum) in Chelmsford Cemetery in October 2018. They were taken along with my son Peter using a drone and they really give a different persepective showing the huge size of the Redwood in comparison to other trees nearby. It was probably planted around 1886 when the lodge was built, so it's really just a baby.
