Giant Redwood September 2015
A chance encounter with this Wellingtonia in Holton St. Mary happened to coincide with two bike rides that were taking place that day - the 34th Suffolk Historic Churches bike ride and also the Colchester to Hadleigh and Raydon bike ride. Luckily we arrived before the police closed the road, so were able to enjoy a relaxing cup of tea, a delicious piece of cake and a chat with some very friendly locals at St. Mary's church before the hoards of cyclists arrived.
