Chichester - Rew Lane (Sussex)
|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.
* * * Update - August / October 2022 * * *
We heard from a concerned resident in August 2022 that a couple of these trees were the subject of an application to be felled.
Fortunately many residents and organisations objected and the application was withdrawn in October 2022.
