October 2003 – Tim Hills: 400 year old trees with a known planting date can act as markers when considering the age of larger, older trees. Growth of this yew is upwards rather than outwards – there has been much cutting back of branches facing the church. Bulges at 5′. Girth was 14′ 2” (432cm) at the ground.
