Notes: A tree of 2 substantial fragments, known as 'The Parted Yew' is found in Kyre Park. It appears to have hollowed before splitting and falling. Photographs show it to be little changed since 1887. During the 1800s the site was regularly visited by Botanical Groups who were unable to agree whether this was one or two trees.
