Source of earliest mention: No dataNotes:
April 2015 – Tim Hills: The yew grows on the south side of the church. One side is covered in ivy, the other shows a fine looking bole, with a height of 5’/6′ before much branching. The tree bulges just below this height where many branches have been removed in the past. On the west side a gap leads to a dead sapwood section suggesting that the tree will eventually become a horse shoe hollow shape. Girth of 12′ 6” (381cm) close to the ground included a few ivy stems.
July 2016 – Paul Wood: The notable yew grows in well kept churchyard where the yews are left alone with minimal human interaction. I recorded a girth of 12′ 7” (384cm) at 4”. At the time of my visit it was possible to see that a number of established yews grow in domestic gardens in the village, hinting perhaps that the former priory had established gardens attached, since the yews were certainly older than the houses.
