March 1999 – Tim Hills: A gargantuan yew (which we considered to be male, though it has been recorded elsewhere as female) grows metres from the church’s west porch. Its huge girth of 28′ 6” (869cm) at its narrowest close to the ground, expands to 30′ 9″ (937cm) at 3′ and 31′ 6 at 5′. Inside its hollow is a wealth of internal growth.
