Yews recorded at this site: Notable

Notes: In 2010 Peter Norton made the following observation: 'Walking up an incline at SU271345 several yews line the way along with a small copse on your left (east).' In 2020 Hugo Egleston noted the copse to be predominantly yew. Also that many unusual earthworks occupy the entire copse but these are not marked on the map. He considers they are perhaps part of a former commercial rabbit warren. There is no public access to the tree, but it can seen from the road - called The Warren.
