Paul Wood – 2017: Yew D on the plan grows SE of the church on the original curving bank of the churchyard, now found 5 to 6 metres inside the current boundary. In August the yew was hidden behind a curtain of elder and could easily go unnoticed. It is a squat male tree with many branches of no great age and with signs of much branch removal in the past. A girth of 14′ 2” (4.32 m) was recorded at the ground but within a foot the bole swells to over 19′ (5.79m). Short twiggy growth covered most of the bole. There were signs that the tree was hollowing and the yellow chicken of the woods (laetiporus sulphureus) was visible in a number of places.
