February 2001 Tim Hills: Growing NNW of the church, the tree is buttressed for the first foot before it swells outwards – presumably where it has in the past been cut. Here is much vertical twiggy growth. At 5′ it measured exactly 13′ (measured inside all the new upright growth). Girth was 13′ 9” (419cm) at the ground.
Steve Young – 2008: 432cm recorded at 150cm.
