October 2015 – Tim Hills: The notable yew grows north of the church on the west side of the churchyard. Broken stones and plastic sacks had been left under the tree. What looked like a metal ladder rung is embedded in the tree – it has been in situ for decades. Bulging of the bole begins above a height of about 5′. Girths recorded were as follows: 13′ 8” (417cm) at 1′, but this will include some of the bulging root; 12′ 6” (381cm) at 2′ 6”, the height of the embedded metal; 12′ 5¼” (379cm) at 4′.
