Source of earliest mention: Tree Register data Base


October 2005: The Tree Register data base lists a yew on the Front Lawn of Claverton Manor with a diameter of 191 cm (about 19′). The estate’s largest yew is an untypical tree with many fluted branches. Mr Woollen (head gardener) explained that it would have been a self seeded tree in an area of many yews, and that when the house and drive were constructed about 180 years ago the tree was probably cut right back leaving little more than a stump. Certainly the upright fluted growth looks to be of this sort of age.
May 2012 – Peter Norton: 17′ 7” (536cm) at root crown.
2014 – Owen Johnson: Lower side of drive at bend before garden. Clean fluted boles dividing from 1m. Girth of 547cm (17′ 11”) at 0.4.
