Notes: June 1999 Tim Hills: These 3 separated fragments are undoubtedly parts of one tree - either a great bole that split apart, or peripheral growth on the edge of a decaying bole of which there is now no trace above ground. I was only able to ascertain the sex of one of the fragments as female. The yew is becoming increasingly hemmed in by deciduous trees that fill this rambling churchyard. Girth was taken around the base of all 3 fragments.
