April 2015 – Tim Hills: This tree was not noted in the 2000 visit, probably hidden behind a large tree (not yew) which has been recently felled. It is further north than the large fragmented tree, almost on the churchyard perimeter. It has a gnarled bole, a result of the removal of much low growth. On of its large upright stems is of dead sapwood; this is being used as scaffolding for new growth. Girth was 16′ 3” (485cm) at the ground, but has been larger girthed before the loss of some of its north side.
