November 2000 – Tim Hills: I was invited by the owner to record this yew. It is a fine male tree with particularly red bark. Above 3′ its branches spread outwards from the bole, while above 8′ three or four rising branches took the tree to a considerable height. One of its branches had dipped beneath the soil before resurfacing. Foliage, while not thick, was plentiful. The ground beneath the yew, for its whole umbrage, was ivy covered. It also covered the bole, though it did not climb into the tree’s branches. There were no visible signs of hollowing.
September 2015 – Tim Hills: It has been reported to me that when the tree was visited only three years after my November 2000 visit, it was described as a ‘sick old yew’. This is an unusually rapid demise for any yew. Two years later in 2005 it is reported to have been struck by lightning and removed.
