In 2019 Duane sent the photograph below of a Giant Redwood "spotted at Worlingham All Saints parish church.
My daughter was very happy, it was the first large redwood she had stood right next to,
plus the ground was covered in cones so we took a dozen to see if we can grow our own.
Elevation 66 feet N 52.45231 E 1.59669
Estimated height 20-22 meters trunk at 1.5 metres, girth 4.1 metres.

Thanks Duane, good luck with your seed sowing.
I know how fantastic it is having a Redwood of your own that you've grown from a tiny seed.
On a visit to Suffolk in 2020 I was able to take some additional photographs and measure the tree with instruments.
It turns out that Duane's estimate was spot on!
