August 2006 – visited by 38 members of Eibenfreunde as part of a 10 day trip to study yew sites in Southern England. It was observed here that those growing on open land close to the hill fort have had numerous low branches removed in an attempt to allow more light to reach the ground, supposedly encouraging grass to grow beneath the trees and prevent soil erosion.
