This fine collection of six Giant Redwood trees line the verge of Rew Lane. They are well tended by local residents, who have done a great job of keeping the dreaded ivy at bay. They have also planted colourful flower beds around three of the trees that sit in front of one of the bungalows.

The area was noted as having a Roman entrenchment nearby and also as a defence line for General Hackett during the English civil war.
