In 1985 there were 32 Yews in the old part of the churchyard, girths between 191 and 340cm, all perhaps planted at about the same time and giving it a character unique in the county. Three of the trees were felled that year. Another was blown down in 2002, and its solid trunk 175cm girth had 104 annual rings, making it the only dated Yew in the county. The three biggest remaining trees, measured in 1985, are one on the north side of the path 28m W of the SE lychgate, male, 340cm girth; the NW-most tree, NW of the church, male, 335cm girth; and one S of the path 25m W of the SE lychgate, female,310cm girth.
