The Potters Bar Community Hospital on Barnet Road has two Giant Redwood in its grounds. One sits at the front of the building, adjacent to the car park, the other is in a large raised circular bed snuggled by the new buildings. They both appear to be in fine shape, but the one at the front does have the dreaded ivy starting to work its way up its trunk. Hopefully the caretaker will notice it before too long and "surgically" remove it - it should be a routine operation.
