April 2006 – Russell Cleaver: The yew grows SW of the church. It has a trimmed stem to 6′ where it branches into 4 large leaders. A little visible rot was noted. Girth of 18′ 8”/ 5.69m at 3′.
January 2012 – Peter Norton: Some of the soil has been removed around part of the bole to allow for seating. This has exposed some of the minor lateral roots which in turn have been cut. Girths recorded were 18′ 1” (551cm) close to the ground and 18′ 3′ (556cm) at 1′.
