August 1998 – Tim Hills: A distinctive twin trunked yew. These two stems were recorded by the Tree Register in 2007 – as 374 and 302cm at 1.5m. They noted that the trunks are similar in girth and appearance to tree 2 and therefore the possibility should be considered that these were planted as separate individual trees. It is numbered 4 on the plan, ESE of the church.
September 2005 – Russell Cleaver- 5.50m (18′ 2”) at 0.4m, the level of the table tomb. Hollow and clean-stemmed.
November 2017 – Paul Wood: This seems like one tree to me. It looked to be in good health with deep green foliage which, though not thick, was plentiful. Many small dead branches have been cut back and protrude through the bole. Much lichen was noted high up on the foliage and branches. The bole was very scaly and many small areas of fungus are appearing.
