Tim Hills: There appears to be a large yew in (1) the 1807 black and white photograph of a watercolour by Petrie and (2) in the 1853 sepia drawing by William F. Saunders. These are reproduced with the permission of the Kent Archaeology Society at www.kentarchaeology.org.uk.
In 1999 Owen Johnson noted that only half of a hollow bole remains in situ. This is shown in photos 3 and 4.
With a girth of under 4m the tree is presently classified as notable. Because it displays veteran characteristics it will in the future be classified as V-con (veteran on account of its condition).
