Notes: A Norman font is thought to indicate the date of the earliest church at this site. In 1999 the churchyard was so overgrown that the yews were inaccessible and only one could be properly recorded. Russell Cleaver's 2007 photo shows a remarkable transformation, such that a second 20' + girthed yew was discovered on the western perimeter of the churchyard. A further two younger yews are found on the north side of the church.
