Notes: 1946: Vaughan Cornish recorded that here were 'churchyard yews which form a walk'. 2003 - Tim Hills: I counted 28 yews in this 'walk', some in single file and other creating an avenue, with 5 more furthest away from the church. They grow above a stream and alongside an avenue of Irish yews, the central row appearing to have been trained at some time as if to create a yew tunnel. The trees have been planted in a westerly direction from the church.
