Source of earliest mention: 1970: Brecon Yew Survey


1970 – Brecon Yew Survey also recorded a hollow yew 25ft in girth NW of the church. This no longer exists.
2009 – Edwin Pretty: A slightly raised area of ground noted. In the middle of it a yew has been planted. Around the edge of the raised ground are the remains of a decayed tree trunk.
2011 – Tim Hills: I asked a local farmer about the lost yew. She said the old yew tree blew down in gales over twenty years earlier (presumably 1987) and that she had planted the sapling in 1998. Its always useful to establish planting dates, and its growth may be monitored over the years. We do not know the age of the sapling when it was planted. The tree is to the NW of the church.
