January 2004 – Tim Hills: The female yew has an attractive fluted trunk, its first branches appearing at 7’/8′. It retains a large girth for 12’/15′ as many of its branches stretch upwards from the edges of the bole, suggesting the possibility of a lost central branch. Girth was 12′ 2” (371cm) at 1′ in 2004 and 12′ 8” (386cm) at 1′ in June 2015. At a height of 5′ girth was 12′ 11” (394cm) in 2004 and 13′ 5” (409cm) in 2015.
