March 2005

June 2007
Thanks to Bob from Middlesex for sending details and a photograph of the Wellingtonia tree on Egham Cricket Ground in March 2005.

Bob also found Wellingtonia trees in (1) a private garden next to Englefield Green, (2) at the Royal Holloway College, Runnymede Campus (Englefield Green) and (3) in a private garden half way up Egham Hill on the junction with Middle Hill.

I was fortunate to visit on a sunny day in June 2007 and took the photograph on the right.
