Source of earliest mention: 1986:J.Daryll EvansNotes:
In his book The Churchyard Yews of Gwent, Revd J.Daryll Evans records visiting this churchyard on 24th December 1986. He recorded a yew with a girth of 355cm (11′ 8”) at 1m and described that the trunk was ‘open on the west side and encloses a secondary stem’.
By 2021 the tree had been cut down, leaving only a stump between 2′ and 3′ high. Inside can be see that the secondary stem was a series of smaller internal stems. Many rings were still visible. There was also charring visible, suggesting that either the tree was set on fire and this led to its demise, or that there was an attempt after felling to destroy the rest of the stump.
