Notes: In 1877 the following information was reported by the Worcestershire Naturalists Club: 'A very old and shattered yew tree in the churchyard (St John) claimed attention, and it was said to be the oldest yew in Worcestershire. It is quite hollow, and may certainly claim to have existed a thousand years, and probably stood here when a Christian fabric was first reared on the hill'.
