12 Church End
By Haddenham Webteam - 12th June 2016 3:00pm
Many thanks to all who visited Turn End Trust stall at the fete on Saturday 11th June and took up the challenge of guessing the height of the giant sequoia in Turn End garden.
Those who remember their geometry from schooldays would doubtless have had an advantage, as the lower of the two illustrations clearly demonstrates!
Feel free to send us the instructions, on a postcard please, to ....
But seriously, as promised by the good people at Turn End, here's the officially recorded height: 21.15 meters (or, in old money, 69.389 feet).
It was a very close contest, so congratulations to the three winners — all of whom have been notified.
You can read about how the height of the tree was actually measured here.
You can also see the tree in situ in Turn End garden during the upcoming Sculpture in the Garden exhibition when the garden is open as part of Bucks Open Studios from 18th — 26th June, 11:00am — 6:00pm.
