April 2001 – Tim Hills: The largest yew at the site is number 2 on Paul Wood’s plan. It grows close to the path south of the church. A hollow stem has been filled with concrete and above it 2 stone slabs placed to make a seat. Girth was 17′ 9” (541cm) at 1′.
2016 Paul Wood: It was not possible to measure due to thick twiggy growth and out of control weeds and ivy. In spite of the profusion of twiggy growth and small branches, foliage cover was not particularly thick.
