August 1998 – Tim Hills: A badger sett beneath the tree. Central branch and several others dead. Girth shown was recorded in 1998, when an unhealthy appearance was noted. I
2012 Tim Hills: Tree 5 on the plan. The crown was filled with healthy foliage. Much composting grass was being stored beneath its branches. Girth of approximately 22′ recorded.
September 2005 – Russell Cleaver- ‘Largest girthed yew at this site, multi-stemmed, measured 6.63m (21′ 9”) at 1.1m. Bushy re-growth, difficult to measure’.
November 2017 – Paul Wood: Yew 5 was found much as previously recorded. The badger sett was still there, as was the mound of composting grasses and much rubbish. Twiggy growth on low branches made measurement impossible. The yew had much foliage and though it looked healthy was not particularly thick. It was impossible to get close to the centre of the tree, with only its south side relatively clear.
