This Giant Redwood stands in the graveyard of the church in Elmore. It was starting to suffer a little from ivy or tree creeper invasion, but otherwise seems in very good health. This church is also noted for the remains of an 18th century mausoleum. It is fenced off to protect it, but has been allowed to become overgrown with brush and tree branches. Sadly much of the mausoleum has gone now but there are the four pillars still standing. These are worth seeing for the quality of the construction, with accurately cut stone blocks laid very precisely, the workmanship is worthy of the stonework in the finest cathedrals.
