April 1999 – Tim Hills: North of the church and on a mound. It consists of two trunks, a limb stretching out just above the ground, and a piece of stump. In 1999 I considered the possibility that these were the remains of a larger tree that once grew in the space between the various parts. In 2013 I was able to confirm the easterly trunk and the lying trunk as female, and the westerly trunk as male. It seems likely therefore that there were originally four trees planted in a square.
