January 2004 – Tim Hills: The smaller girthed of the two yews at Chew Stoke, it grows SSW of the church. It has not been measured, but is probably only about 8′ in girth. The tree was topped at a height of about 10′ sometime in the past and this has led to its decay. This is seen on the south side, where rotting heartwood and internal stem development can be seen. A horseshoe hollow shape is developing.
