February 1998 – Tim Hills: The yew grows at the NE corner of the church and only 3 metres from the building. It consists of several thick branches from above a height of about 6′. Proximity to the building has resulted in the removal of many more.
Measured in 2014, girth was 15′ 1½” (461cm) at 2′ – the height of several nails that somebody has unnecessarily hammered into the tree, and 16′ 1” (490cm) between 1′ and 2′.
