A magnificent grove of 58 Giant Sequoia trees
The Giant Redwood trees at Stowlangtoft can best be described as magnificent. Firstly there are the twenty or so dotted around the front lawns of the hall. They have plenty of room and most grow unrestricted as beautiful specimen trees. Then there is the grove, from a distance it looks like an avenue but once you get close up, and walk along the path in the middle, there are obviously more trees than you had previously guessed, we counted fifty-eight. The peaceful setting helped to imagine being in a similar grove in California only with trees many times bigger.

There are records of a Hall existing on this site since the 1700s but the current Hall was built in 1859 and is currently being used as a nursing home. Being a private property you will need to ask permission before wandering through this superb collection. Thanks to Simon who originally told us about this location.

The scariest beech tree in the world?!
