April 2002 – Tim Hills: Mee (1940s) thought the yew ‘may have been here since the Conqueror’, in which case there must have originally been a much larger specimen on this site, since the largest measures only about 13′. It grows west of the church and has been regularly cut back on the side facing the road. Ivy had not only taken hold on the outside, but had also taken root inside the tree, emerging at 3′.
