This really is Redwood Heaven. Around 100 or so Giant Redwoods, of about 140 years old, many of them in a huge avenue, the rest spread across many acres of woodland. They are in Havering Park, which was landscaped by the Macintosh family who planted the avenue of Redwoods leading to their mansion. The mansion fell into disrepair and, sadly, was demolished in 1925. However, their lasting legacy has been this wonderful collection of trees.
A large branch, or perhaps two trees grown together? Whatever the reason for this oddity, it certainly makes it nigh-on impossible to obtain a meaningful girth measurement.
