I was alerted to this site by the story of a knight who was ‘pierced by a sword to the yew tree’ on his return from the Far East. The most recent landscape survey shows two yew trees on the estate in good condition, aged around 240 yrs. This would suggest they were planted around 30 yrs after the main house as it stands today was constructed.
