1983 – Reg Wheeler: Girth of 13′ 0” (396cm) at the ground.
January 2005 – Tim Hills: I recorded 13′ 11” (424cm) at the ground. The yew grows SE of the church on a steep 3′ high mound with what appears to be a rough wall at the base. The tree’s original ground level may therefore be several feet below where it is today. It has a prominent central riser, thick limbs from close to the present ground level, and far spreading branches. Foliage was sparse.
August 2015 – Paul Wood: Southeast of the church. It was not possible to measure, because a nearby holly tree grows across and under the yew and brick rubble and broken glass lay on the ground beneath the tree. The tree appears to be in good health.
