1998 – Tim Hills: Other trees are crowding out what is left of this yew. Two very straight and tall branches grow from close to the ground, while what was probably the main branch has been removed. Girth will diminish when the stump has decayed. There were signs of fire/smoke damage. A girth of 19′ (579cm) was recorded in Meredith’s list found in The Sacred Yew by Chetan and Brueton -1994.
2022 – Sally Hyman: Photos show that only one trunk remains.
