Gosfield - Gosfield Hall (Essex)
|Gosfield Hall has a fine collection of Giant Redwood (Sequoiadendron giganteum), at least six large trees and what looked from a distance to be two or three very young saplings. The second of the two photographs shows the Redwood closest to the house. It seems to have sustained some damage over the years, possibly due to erosion of the soil around its base. The rest of the tree looked to be in excellent health.
Time did not permit a more detailed exploration of the area so a return visit to do this and to measure the trees is in order.
