December 1998 – Tim Hills: This yew fragment grows on the north side. The tree became hollow and split into two. One of the fragments is now only a stump, at an angle which indicates that this portion of the tree once leaned and perhaps fell before being removed, leaving only the stump. From the live fragment grows a row of new upright branches. Girth was 19′ 6″ (594cm) around the base of both fragments.
May 2013 – Peter Norton: The most interesting of several yews in the churchyard grows to the north of the church. It consists of the partial remains of a once larger male specimen. Part of the tree lies on the ground and is covered in ivy. The standing part has new growth on the internal wall. Around this part girth was 19′ (579cm) at 2′ 6”, measured at this height to exclude the bulbous base.
