Wallingford - Castle Gardens (Oxfordshire)

|There may not be much left of Wallingford Castle itself, but the marvellous and tranquil castle gardens more than make up for the lack of stonework. As well as the two large Giant Redwoods in the gardens (and several just oustide it) there is a superb young Wellingtonia in the middle of the lawn.
There are two large Coast Redwoods inside the park, and a young one can also be found in All Hallows Churchyard which is just outside the Castle Gardens wall. It is rather hidden among other trees, but no doubt in time it will come to dwarf them, just like its Giant Redwood cousins.
