Yews recorded at this site: Ancient 5m-7m

Notes: Formerly Llansantfraid-Glyn-Dyvrdwy. The church was built at this site in 1611 to replace the original building which had been swept away in a flood. In Lewis's 1849 Topographical Dictionary of Wales are described 'three old yew-trees of remarkably fine growth'. The Clwyd Powys Archaeological Trust says that the new church was built on 'virgin land'. Three yews grow here, a young male between two females. The oldest grows SSE of the church and appears significantly older than the church.
