Michaelston-super - Ely

Nearest town: Cardiff

Site type: churchyard

Access: Public

Church name: St Michael

Diocese: Llandaff

County: Cardiff

Country: Wales

Grid ref: ST11517634

Lost yew site: No

Date visited: 8-Jul-15

Recorded by: Tim Hills

Protection & responsibility: Church in Wales

Yews recorded at this site: Ancient 5m-7m

Notes: The church building is at the end of Persondy Lane, a no through road. It has been sold and is being converted into a house. The new owner has already planted a yew hedge to screen the house entrance from the churchyard, which will of course still be accessible and continues to belong to the Church in Wales. The tree grows very close to the building on the south side and it is hoped that it will not suffer the fate that befell some of the yews at Llandefaelog-tre'r-graig when its church was sold for conversion to a house.
