This yew is number 3 on the plan. It is completely hollowed out, with an entrance 9” wide at the ground closing over at a height of 5′ 3”. Two feet above this it produces many branches. Girth was 12′ 4½” (377cm) at 1′ above the ground at the gap. Since the ground slopes, the tape was kept horizontal. At a height of 3′ above the gap, a girth of 12′ 11” (394cm) was recorded.
With a girth of under 4m the tree is presently classified as notable. Because it displays veteran characteristics it will in the future be classified as V-con (veteran on account of its condition).
