Some advice from a local in the village led to the inclusion of the Giant Redwood at the Munnings Art Collection Museum which is housed in Castle House on Castle Hill. It is just a twenty minute stroll from the centre of Dedham and another local told us that the house itself is worth a visit. It was not open on this particular day but the Sequoiadendron giganteum in the garden still made the visit worthwhile. The gardener informed us that he could see this tree from Stratford St Mary and a passer-by on a bicycle told us it can be seen from Flatford Mill. Such pleasant and informative people in Dedham! Thank you.
