June 2002 – Tim Hills: Yew 5 on the plan. Girth of 16′ 4” (498cm) between the ground and 6” was recorded in 2002. Deep holes in the base show that there are internal structures from which the large central branches develop. Girth of exactly 17′ close to the ground was recorded in 2014. Ground level has been raised by soil piled against the trunk. The photos are from 2014.
