October 1997 – Tim Hills: I understood the tree to be under threat of felling so that the church could be extended. Girth was 21′ 2″ both at the ground and at 3′.
In 2005 the tree appeared in poor health but by 2007 was producing much new foliage.
It was felled in November 2011. Within days all trace of the tree had been removed and the ground levelled. The tree consisted of a large fragment which divided at 6′ into 2 main branches.
