Latest information: 10th April 2014 Peter Norton: In 1958 Swanton published his book on the yews of England:'The church is in a very secluded spot high up on the hills; Mr Giltrow and I measured it on October 15th, 1954. The trunk is not hollow and there is much spray on it. Girth about 18` 6``. The crown of 9 branches has an umbrage 61ft in diameter'. In 2001 the yew was recorded as 21' 6'' at the ground; it was not possible to measure at this height as chicken wire has been placed against the bole, but at 3' 6'' from the ground a girth of 19' 10'' was recorded.
