The Head Gardener, Alex, is seen in the above pictures next to young Redwood trees at Ingatestone Hall.

Ingatestone Hall did not have a Giant Redwood (Sequoiadendron giganteum) or a Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) before these were planted three years ago near the old well house. A Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides) is also nearby.


Planting in August 2004

Ingatestone Hall has been owned by the Petre family since it was built by William Petre in the 16th century. William was a lawyer from Devon who became Secretary of State to four Tudor monarchs. The Hall is set in 11 acres of grounds, which include a formal garden, and is open to the public at certain times.
