Tanygroes - Tyllwyd estate (Cardiganshire)
|Thanks to Marie for sending the above photographs of a Wellingtonia in Ceredigion (Cardiganshire). Marie says, "Its girth at 1m is 19 feet. Not sure how old it is, but I guess it's one of the early specimens.
The field once would have been the front 'park' of the large 'Tyllwyd' estate. The house name is Plas Tyllwyd, village name is Tanygroes, 7 miles north of Cardigan town.
The second picture was taken in November 2007 after the tree had its 'short back and sides' by the farmer who now uses the field."
