These relatively small trees were described in 1883 as no more than 3 centuries old. The grouping of 4 female yews to form a square 10m from a larger female must have been deliberate, though why they should be planted here and in this manner is not known. 3 further yews were recorded in 1883. Of these, two remain, one alive (also female) the other a stump.
