Tim Hills – 2007: Many branches that once overhung the stream have been removed. All growth seems to emanate from a short bole of about 2′. Girth of 15′ 3” (465cm) was recorded at the top of bank ground level, 2′ up on the bole at the lower ground.
September 2015 – Paul Wood: The yew is covered in ivy and some dead branches are starting to fall. The lower small limbs appear to be starting to be enveloped by twiggy growth which is also beginning to develop into small branches. After photographing we cleared back the weeds and measured at the top of bank ground level, recording a girth of 15′ 7” (4.75m) measured over ivy.
