Source of earliest mention: 1866: Summer Rambles by Leo Grindon


Taken from summer rambles in Cheshire, Derbyshire, Lancashire and Yorkshire by L.Grindon: ‘Being rather a long way, it is best, however, to return to Bowdon, which may be done by turning into the fields on the left hand, close to Warburton’s, and so, by a lovely walk, to Bank Hall, and its seventeen yew-trees’. The grounds contain approximately 100 yew trees of various age. Visited in 2017 Dale Burns found a hidden yew tunnel leading about 100′ in length leading to a yew circle.
