This superb Giant Redwood sits in the garden of the Vicarage, just the other side of South Street from the church. The owner has done a fine job of clearing away the dreaded ivy from the trunk. This legacy from the Victorian era is fortunate in having owners that are taking a keen interest in its welfare and history. It is their young son's favourite tree in the garden, and rightly so!
