An early evening stroll through the woods in late Summer was rewarded with the discovery of these two fine specimens of Wellingtonia. It is possible there may be more but time did not permit any further exploration.

Perhaps someone else may venture a little further towards Ponsbourne Park Hotel and let us know what they find. A resident of the area thought that there may be an avenue of redwoods on the estate, it would be nice to have this confirmed.
