Paul Wood – 2016: The yew was measured at the root crown, its narrowest point. Close examination suggests that this was once larger girthed. In its present form it is growing well with a very green canopy. It appears to be the only yew here that is regularly cut back, perhaps to allow for easier access to the church entrance, only a few metres north of the tree.
