One of the churchyard’s five yews is recorded here, growing south of the church. In 1986 J.Daryll Evans recorded a girth of 396cm (13′ 0”) at 1m.
In January 2022 I recorded 423cm (13′ 10”) at 1m. This is no longer a reliable height for comparative measurements to be taken so it was also measured as 406cm (13′ 4”) at 30cm. The female tree consists of two main stems from a 3′ high bole.
