Notes: 1999 Tim Hills: The yew swells from 18' at the ground, through 18' 4'' at 1', to a massive 28' at 4'. Its centre was filled with 4' of decaying material. The shape of its crown was still pyramidal, as described in 1880. By 2018, Peter Norton's photos show a more rounded shape to the tree. He considers that it grows at what was probably once the original churchyard perimeter. He describes a 4' bole from which seven main areas of growth emerge. It appears to be hollow, but is filled with the detritus of age (needle drop and seeds). A girth of 18' 11'' was recorded at the root crown.
