Notes: The ancient male yew is now a huge half shell, with a 2nd small fragment at the entrance to its vast hollow, which has been reduced to a single very straight branch. The stone table and chairs, probably well intentioned, are completely out of place. They were presumably put in situ before the small fragment began to lean. The girth of 26' 7'' includes the smaller fragment at the height of the top of the stone chair. The large fragment on its own had a girth of about 25'. It would not be possible to reproduce these measurements.
