A tithe map of 1839 gives the name Yew Tree Field to this site. Is this the yew in question, or did it replace an older one that once grew here? The trunk is approx 13 feet in circumfrence at its base and approx 14 feet at about 5 feet. It is a single column but there are hollows in it highter up where it forks. One or two big boughs have been cut off.
