This Giant Redwood stands outside the Guide hut along Marriot's Walk.
The hut itself was originally one of the wooden huts built to accomodate soldiers of the Great War while they were in training.
Adjacent to the Giant Redwood tree is the Museum of East Anglian Life where you can spend a pleasant day looking at the exhibits from yesteryear and enjoy a picnic by the wind pump, weather permitting. Among the many things on display are farming machinery, steam engines and a water mill that was moved to save from being lost under the Alton reservoir when it was created in 1973.
