April 2002 – Tim Hills: The original trunk is dead and broken off at about 15′. When it decays it will leave two fragment yews with a large space between. Girth was 19′ 5” (592cm) at 1′ and 20′ 4” (620cm) at 5′.
2016 – Mark Turner: The tree consists of two live sections at opposing sides of the tree. The dead parts have divided up into three distinct parts, one of which appears to be rotting at ground level and could possibly fall into the old tree at some point.
The tree is numbered 6728 in the Ancient Tree Hunt’s records and given a girth of 578cm at 1m.
