Coast Redwood and other trees

Giant Redwood seen from across the canal

Dawn Redwood
Frampton is claimed to have the largest village green in England at twenty two acres, although the title is disputed. On the day of the visit Frampton Country Fair was being held in Frampton Court and the green was being used as a car park. The Redwoods can be found a little further down the road (B4071). One of the Coast Redwoods has three trunks, it is not clear whether this began as one sapling that split or several planted too close together. Further down The Street there is a Dawn Redwood sitting in the small front garden of a house. There are some lovely walks along the canals and Severn river in this area.
