Nick from Cambridgeshire very kindly sent us this photograph of a Wellingtonia tree in Yaxley Cemetery, Dovecote Lane.

Nick mentions "The tree, is about 75' high, this is just an estimate.It is beautiful, the bark has a hollow sound to it and is thick and spongy".
The above photograph was taken on a visit in 2007 when I had the opportunity to measure the tree and note its co-ordinates.
