February 2001 – Tim Hills: The yew grows west of the church. Two of its main branches had been recently removed. There was presumably a good reason for this over zealous treatment? Girth of 17′ 3” (526cm) at 1′ recorded.
March 2021-Paul Butterworth: Measured again at 1′ a girth of 559 cm girth or 18′ 4″ was recorded. Lower bole now covered in twiggy growth.
