2005 – Tim Hills: A yew of striking appearance, consisting of 3 fragments of the original tree, two living and the third a dead hollow stump.
2006 – Tim Hills: One of the living fragments leaned and fell, but remained well connected to the ground. In October of that year, at a site meeting attended by Father Paul MacNess, Janet Spencer, and Jamie Jukes (director of Environmental Care Associates Ltd) it was decided that the standing trunk should be supported on an oak prop, and that since the fallen section was not interfering with access or tombstones it should be left to grow in its new position. It was noted that the fallen section was growing with great vigour and that many branches touching the ground after the fall were already sweeping upwards and no longer on the ground. In 2014 I revisited and found that the fallen section has vanished, almost without trace. It was good to see that there is a stout prop supporting the remaining fragment.
