August 1999 – Tim Hills: The yew grows SSW of the church, its branches dipping to the ground around much of the tree.
September 2015 – Dougald Purce: Condition of tree is still good and management – or lack of – is appropriate. Some very minor browning on tips possibly associated with yew gall midges but not enough to be a concern. Girth of 27′ 3” at the ground was recorded in 1983.
