Latest information: Peter Norton 2015: Girth of 22' 3'' at the ground. Hollow with a large internal stem, much white wood in evidence, with secondary wood flowing around it. Girth includes a thick ivy stem. Found at SU0747214264. Peter Andrews 2010: Large female yew. Very tall, multi stemmed above its hollow and split base. Initial measurement of 25' at 3' does not give a true picture of its size. We passed a tape through small side branches and spray and recorded 23' at the base. This fine tree seems to have been a favourite with local children, with many well made platforms in the branches.
