October 1997 – Tim Hills: Tree 2. A bristly yew with many branches rising from a short, squat bole. There are marks where many branches have been removed. A healthy looking tree.
2012 – Tim Hills: In only five years the vigorous green healthy tree seen in the 2007 photo has become part filled with red leaves. This is affecting about two thirds of the tree. The large quantity of ivy growing into its topmost branches is also noted. On this visit the tree was measured, confirming the 20′ estimated girth of 1997. It was also measured excluding the low branch seen on the left in photo 5 and 18′ was recorded.
2016 – Paul Wood: Twiggy growth of some length covers all of the bole and made the tree unmeasurable. Ivy was still present, though no longer in the quantity recorded earlier. Through the twiggy growth the bole looked a striking deep purple/red colour with a fair canopy of yellowy green foliage.
