Notes: Although now in a garden, this yew would seem to be situated on an ancient boundary. The house nearby dates back to 1504. An article was written some time ago entitled 'The oldest living thing in Sheffield' (Sheffield Archives). I consider that it is likely to be the oldest living tree in South Yorkshire.
