April 2002 – Tim Hills: SW of church is a male yew with central stem surrounded by many trunks/branches from ground level on one side of the tree and from a height of 3’/4′ on the other. The girth is misleading and nothing about this tree suggested great age. A second male grows north west of the church by the road. It consists of several rising stems joined for the first few feet.
July 2006 – Cliff Hansford: The yew south of the church had, at ground level, many limbs projecting outwards from a central trunk. There were no signs of limb removal or hollowing. The yew had a healthy and vigorous appearance. It was with some difficulty that I recorded a girth of 18′ at the ground. The yew NW of the church was of healthy appearance with a good crown. At a height of two feet the trunk divides into 5 separate limbs. Girth was 10′ 9” at 3′.
