2009 Peter Norton: Of two yews recorded here, the most interesting is a tree known locally as the ‘Bleeding Yew’, with copious secretions of sap from its trunk. It grows SW of the church. Girth was 13′ 2” (401cm) at 1′ and 15′ 1” (460cm) at 3′. The second yew, male, grows at the rear of the church. Girths were recorded of 10′ 9” at 1′, 10′ 8” at 3′ and 11′ at 4′ 6”.
