Source of earliest mention: 1953: A History of the County of Sussex


1953: A History of the County of Sussex described ‘an ancient yew with a remarkable twisted stem south of the church’. The twisted tree is in fact a macrocarpa, but a formidable ancient yew once grew close to it. Perhaps it too was twisted? It has been lopped at about 8/10ft and was hollow, with evidence of much burnt wood within the hollow. The reason for its felling is not known.
