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

Notes: In Peter Andrews' article The Medieval Yews of John of Gaunt's Deer Park, he notes that 'opposite the walls of Mottisfont Abbey a number of yews have been planted by the roadside to mark its boundary. Today these yews stand on the edge of the village gardens'. This yew now grows behind a wooden fence at the end of the last garden in the village as you head north towards Bossington and Houghton. Several further yews could be seen in neighbouring gardens, but none appeared to be as much as 12ft in girth.
