2006: A fine shaped tree with a full crown carried on large branches. From 1′ up on the trunk is thick twiggy growth. One large straight piece of trunk behind some decaying wood suggests it might have originated as an internal root/stem. Linnard’s description of ‘a large and ancient yew’ is most apt.
