Notes: Of the many yews in this churchyard, six have girths between 19' and 26'. These are numbered 1,2,4,5,6 and 8 on Reg Wheeler's 1983 plan. Tree 7 no longer exists. Between my visits of 1998 and 2009 ivy had been removed from the trees, giving them a better opportunity to flourish. Llansilin is known to have been a clas establishment in the early medieval era (CPAT).
