Site notes: Part of the church dates from the late 12th century. The yew grows to the N of the church. In the 3rd photo the foreground should be filled with two further yews. During the time the building was being developed to create new homes the two churchyard yews were found to have a series of holes in the lower trunk, into which a substance had been introduced that eventually killed the trees. While it was never established who was responsible it is an illustration of how easy it is for a tree that might affect profitability to be irreparably damaged.
