September 2018 – Tim Hills: A female yew SE of the church. As well as the build up of several feet of soil this tree is also surrounded by decaying greenery from the churchyard as well as a pile of tinder dry twigs and small branches. The tree has an irregular trunk, on the outside a series of stems rise upwards, possibly the result of a lost centre at some time. There was much epicormic growth on the trunks seen high into the tree. Girth of 15′ 10” (484cm) was obtained close to the present ground level.
