Notes: 2006 Tim Hills: The yew grows SW of the church. It is a fine yew split into 2 halves, each hollow with internal growth, and gradually healing. The mound conceals the common origin of these two halves, so girth may well have once been more considerable.

Latest information: Peter Norton November 2017: A male yew growing west of the tower. Initial observation would suggest that this was two hollowing stems emerging from a small mound. But it could also suggest this was once a fine and large tree that has split into two halves. Measurement was difficult but a girth of 23' 8'' and 23' 10'' was obtained near to the ground (photo shows tape height).
