Site notes: 4 noteworthy yews grow at this site. Recent archaeological excavation has confirmed this to be a site of early medieval origin. Andrew Morton considers the site to be 'pre-Christian' (Tree Heritage of Britain and Ireland). Visiting in June 2008 Russell Cleaver described this site as follows: 'in a mountain setting, this is a truly remote church with a shrine that is still a site of pilgrimage. 6 yews grow in the circular churchyard, 4 are major, ancient trees that appear to be as well cared for as the church. A memorable site'.
