A National Trust site is preparing for autumn with a new set of walks.

For the first time, visitors to Wraxall’s Tyntesfield house can learn about the estate’s tallest tree.

The giant redwood, which stands at 32m tall, was brought to the grade-II listed building by the Gibbs family, who lived at Tyntesfield from 1844 to 2001.

Also included in the series of autumnal walks are four routes which focus on different sections of the estate.

Volunteer guides will lead strolls to reveal more about the estate’s most unique and rare living treasures.

Lisa Topham, gardens and countryside manager for the National Trust, said: “Autumn is my favourite time of year at Tyntesfield, the Gibbs family planted trees from around the world so when autumn hits the garden is full of incredible colours which change every day.”
