October 1997 Tim Hills: Very little remains of the yew planted, according to legend, by St Congar. Recent vandalism means there is even less than shown in the photograph. I have yet to find whether the beech was planted close to the yew or grew inside the yew’s hollow. It is possible that by now all traces of the yew will have gone.
