Notes: April 1998 - Furthest from the church on the east side. As well as the central vertical stem, there are 3 massive areas of growth around the tree, each dividing into many thick branches. 2008 - Revisiting this tree 10 years later and with more knowledge about the growth patterns of yews, it seems almost certain that the large vertical trunk rising in the centre of the tree developed first as an internal root before it became an internal stem. Outside of it, and only a couple of feet high, are some scraps of dead wood that would once have been the outer trunk that encased the internal structure as it developed.
