In A History of the county of Buckinghamshire (1925) a fine yew was described growing north-west of the church. It was so large that in the hollow trunk ‘twelve persons can take shelter at the same time’. An elderly resident was able to identify a slight mound under the turf near the Freeman Mausoleum, the only remaining evidence of this once huge tree.
