Photographs by Han van Meegeren show a hollowed out tree with a large internal stem in a position that suggests the tree has been larger still.
Tim Hills: It is suggested that the tree was planted in 1400, making it 613 years old. This is perhaps to understate its likely age.
In 2015 Wim Peeters has uncovered the following information in Annuaire de l’Orne of 1843: ‘In the cemetery towers a yew tree that is well known in the whole country; it has a circumference of more as 7 metres at 1 metre above the ground’.
