Who could think of a better place to enjoy a lunch break during a Redwood hunt, than sitting outside the Pavilion Café underneath three marvellous Wellingtonia! All three are fine trees but the left most Redwood is particularily stunning.

This not-for-profit café in Pinsley Road is run by Leominster's Marshfield Centre and was opened in August 2006. Marshfield is a Herefordshire Council Day Service supporting people with learning disabilities. The building itself is the former cricket pavilion which had been empty for three years before being refurbished for its new role.

As can be seen from the pictures, people were busy clearing the debris of fallen foliage from the guttering and roof. An annual event, apparently, according to the friendly staff.
