August 1999 Tim Hills: One fine old yew, estimated girth of 13′ (396cm).
April 2016 – Paul Wood: The oldest yew grows about 20 metres south of the porch on the south side of the church. It is covered in deep green foliage, the quantity only surpassed by the biggest yew at Cusop. The tree looked much the same as previously recorded and had obviously been managed, since there was only a tiny amount of ivy on the bole. On the south side of the tree is a strip of dying wood the whole length of the bole and it is possible to see that behind this strip is a section of the heart that is hollow. A few of the older branches that have been cut appeared to be hollow as well. The yew was measured at the ground on the south side of the tree but level above the root crown that slightly protrudes around the rest of the tree. A girth of 13′ 2” (4.01m) was recorded.
