Bob from Middlesex very kindly sent details of a Wellingtonia tree in Thorpe Road. He discovered that this tree in Thorpe Road was planted in 1926 by the man who, at the same time, built the bungalow to the left of it (his step son still lives there).

An interesting feature of the first picture is that it shows the immense size of Redwoods (compare the size of the bungalows), a factor which is not always obvious in photographs of trees in woodland areas. It is quite amazing to think that this is relatively young and still growing strong!
