1984 – Alan Mitchell recorded the yew for the Tree Register. He recorded a girth of 437cm (14′ 4”) but did not state whether this was at the low waist or the more usual 1.5m. He was however known for the care he took in trying to obtain the lowest girth figure.
July 2015 – Tim Hills: The largest of several yews in this churchyard grows south of the church. Its slightly twisted bole breaks into several branches at a height of about 8′. There is also much swelling around cut branches, some of which were of large size when cut. Girth of 14′ 6” ((442cm) between ground and 1′ was the narrowest available.
