I saw ten yews, predominantly female and appearing to be in the age range 250-350 years. Several of the trees were showing signs of rotting in the centre, similar to that seen in the much clipped yews at Painswick, suggesting that attempts might have been made to topiarise these yews in their early stages. Three trees form a line leading towards one of the corners of the house. I was told that there were once considerably more than the ten yews counted today and that there once used to be a line of yews across an adjacent field where an ancient right of way used to run.
