January 2000 – Tim Hills: The yew is found in a hedgerow leaving the churchyard towards open countryside. It is a complex hollowing tree with thick foliage but also many discoloured leaves. The processes of decay are well illustrated in this yew. A girth of 15′ 3” (465cm) at 1′ was recorded.
July 2015 – Peter Norton: Lat/Long: 51.162400, -0.900106 The yew grows at the far northwest corner of the churchyard. It is clearly inside the church grounds, with a fence on the far side of the tree clearly marking the boundary with an adjacent property. The tree is hollowing and there may be internal stems. Bramble and holly obscured the east side of the tree. Monty’s memorial stone lies beneath the yew’s canopy. Girth at around 1′ height from the top of the raised bank was 15′ 8” (478cm).
