Local folklore has it that in Victorian times seven Giant Redwood saplings were distributed to the owners of various large houses in the town, and it is likely that this Wellingtonia at The Stables is one of those trees. The original estate to which this tree was part has since been split up for housing, so the lucky owners of this house have inherited this marvellous landmark in their back garden.
