A couple of the marvellous lake views in the park

Look out for falling branches if you sit here!

A Dawn Redwood in its leafless winter state
You will need to bring some comfortable footwear on a visit to Sheffield Park as there are plenty of trails to follow and lots of ground to cover. The above photographs, including the one of the weir, were taken on a very early spring day. Definitely a place worth seeing. Time did not permit tree measuring on this visit and I didn't manage to get a picture of the most unusual Redwood tree in the park, but luckily two contributors sent the pictures shown below after their own visits.

Thanks to Alexander for sending the above two photographs of a Giant Redwood in Sheffield Park. He says that "both were taken 05/05/2008 in Sheffield Park. This is an informal landscape garden five miles east of Haywards Heath in East Sussex."

The Redwood has developed an interesting root system around the base, it even appears to have grown its own seat for young tired admirers!

Thanks also to Tam, who is our top Redwood spotter in Scotland, for sending the above picture of this incredible tree, which was taken by his brother-in-law.
