The rarest tree in the town centre is the one planted right up to the Adult ed Centre - Horton House.

It is one of the large forest Magnolias from North America. That was as far as the British Museum botanists would commit themselves when I sent them a sample some years ago. There are several species in the USA.

It could well be condemned soon as it is getting big. The flowers are not showy in spring but at this time of year it has hundreds of bright red seed-heads, like gerkins, (inedible) falling to the ground. Enjoy it while you can.
