Notes: The 14th century church is no longer used for worship and is cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust. The following description was submitted on the forum by David. 'During a storm in January 1990 we lost one of the biggest churchyard yew in Bedfordshire at St Mary's church Lower Gravenhurst. It may appear in some old photographs taken c.1900 but as far as I know was never recorded. I suspect it wasn't more than 500 years old but even so it shows how a tree could be lost without any record at all'.
