Poultry Cottage and the Fowl House are situated in what was the Naylor Pinetum of the Leighton Estate. The Pinetum still exists but is now looked after by the Royal Forestry Service, as is the Redwood Grove, planted by John Naylor in 1857. We went for a short wander in the woods as far as little legs could manage.

We're going to have to go back to Sequoia National Park for comparison with the biiiiiig redwoods. :)
