Britain’s tallest Christmas tree 27.5 metres high and sparkles with 100,000 bulbs
- Tree stands at 27.5m and 10m wide with 20,000 baubles
- Tree took 12 men seven days to put up and decorate
- Planning permission needed to put up huge tree with decorations that weigh six tons
Decking the halls with boughs of holly and decorating the Christmas tree can often prove a stressful task for most households.
But this year, spare a thought for the team of 12 men who spent seven days putting up Britain’s tallest artificial Christmas tree in Cheshire.
Standing 27.5metres (90ft) tall, and 10metres (32ft) across, the mammoth structure is decorated with nine kilometres of white fairy lights made from 100,000 LED bulbs, 1,000 football-sized red baubles and another 20,000 smaller ones. On top, there’s an extra two kilometres of cabling and everything is held together with half a ton of nuts and bolts.
