Notes: Arborfield Old Church was a chalk and flint building dated from 1256. It is now but a ruin, to be found within the boundary of Hall Farm, close to Arborfield Hall. While solidly built fencing gives each of the two old yews a measure of protection, it does not prevent ivy from growing rampantly through the trees.
