Salford Priors - The Barns (Warwickshire)
|A magnificent specimen Giant Redwood (Sequoiadendron giganteum) stands in Station Road, Salford Priors.
The owner was justifiably proud of the tree and told us about an avenue nearby at Compton Verney.
On the walk back to the car that was left parked in the nearby St. Matthew's church car park, we discovered another Giant Redwood tree tucked away in the back of the churchyard. This was nowhere near as grand a specimen as the one shown above but was nonetheless a nice and unexpected find.
