July 2002 – Tim Hills: The first photo shows a large portion of this tree (left) splitting from the bole.
2019 – Helen Leaf: The male yew grows on the SE edge of the churchyard. It has a tall canopy with a noticeable gap around overhead lines. Its main hollowing trunk has been cut on the side of the tree facing the road, the cut wood left leaning against the trunk on the churchyard side. Above this cut can be clearly seen the accumulated tree debris/leaves, dead wood on other parts of the trunk and aerial roots. Girth was 5.76m at 0.5m.
