Of the few trees remaining at this site, this is the most noteworthy. It is a multi-stemmed yew with a low break of crown. When it was more or less alone on the hill, it would have responded to the relative exposure by spreading horizontally rather than vertically. Girth was recorded at the root crown omitting two of the side limbs.
