Notes: The site comprises a steeply sloping wooded garden between the Earthworks of Anstibury Camp and the road which passes the Plough public house. Yews were noted and a visit arranged by Dr. Peter Shaw of Roehampton University. Two significant yews grow in the garden of a private property which was accessed with the kind permission and useful assistance of the owner. The yews are likely to be contemporary with one another, very possibly deliberately planted in the 15th century to mark the roadway or adorn the site on which the house stands. A third yew, classified as unclassified, grows at the side of the road.
