One of three Giant Redwoods in Great Waltham, this one stands in the grounds of St Mary & St Lawrence Church. A nearby home owner did a superb job of clearing away the ivy and other growth that was spoiling this lovely tree. If only all the Giant Redwood trees we have encountered had local residents that take such great care of the trees in their parish!

Thanks to Paul for an update on this Giant Redwood in Great Waltham.
