August 2000 – Tim Hills: The yew grows SSE of the church on sloping ground. Low growth hindered measurement, but a girth of about 20′ was recorded between the ground and 1′.
August 2006 – Tim Hills: A large central leader with many branches around edge of bole with much twiggy growth. The bole swells close to ground.
May 2016 – Paul Wood: This yew grows at the top of a bank south of church.Though quite accessible I noted that the ground was quite loose, dry and sandy and there was some broken glass scattered around. The yew has very upright short twiggy growth and a lot of small dead branches as well as live wood all over its gnarly and lumpy bole. Foliage was very yellow. A measure was taken (with difficulty) at the height of the ground bulge on the south side of the tree and a girth of 19′ 9” (6.02m) was recorded. This confirms the estimate made in 2000.
