While on a walk to see one of the two sections of the old railway viaduct, we discovered this Giant Sequoia along the path. The viaduct is the last surviving wooden trestle type in England, and it was restored by English Heritage and Essex County Council in 1995. The section shown below crosses the mill stream that once served the mill and its water wheel which are both now demolished. The seven mile branch line that ran across the viaduct enabled merchants in Essex to link with markets in London.
