Notes: September 2012 - Peter Norton - The old church of Dartington, which stood beside Dartington Hall, was demolished in 1873, leaving only its tower. The most significant yew grows west of the tower, with a smaller girthed yew SW. Dartington Hall was almost derelict when it was last purchased in 1925 and the gardens, including many yew, laid out soon afterwards. 2023 - Peter Norton: An additional sprawling yew noted. Classified as notable until it can be studied in greater detail.
