2017 – Paul Wood: A remote site and although the chapel is gone it is regularly visited. The yew appeared to be growing well. There was much twiggy growth at about three feet all around the bole, which on its west side has a spine of white dead wood with a hollowing horseshoe forming behind. The foliage was deep green even in the bright spring sunshine. The smallest girth obtained was 15′ 3” (4.65m) at 6”.
