Yews recorded at this site: Notable

Notes: A religious site from the 12th century, with the present church built in 1780. Two yews grow side by side south of the church on the east side. This is the most easterly of the two. Also growing close to the church tower is a millennium yew, a cutting from the oldest of the two yews growing in Hambledon churchyard in Surrey. It was quite difficult to reach the trees through long grass, and more than a dozen young holly trees have been allowed to grow to a height of several feet.
