Several more yews grow in this garden, the most photographed is the tree which divides into two close to the ground and joins together again at about 6′. Its shape has led to it being called the ‘Yoni’ tree, though it is in fact a male yew. What makes the site significant however is the piece of yew stump excavated from beneath the Chalice Well in 1961. It was examined at Leeds University and was considered to have been growing in late Roman times.
