April 2001 – Tim Hills: The yew grows on sloping ground. A large piece has been sawn off at about 3′.
2016 – Paul Wood: Four yews grow in this impeccably kept churchyard which was a pleasure to visit. Everything growing in the churchyard, including all of the yews, was a rich green. The yew was in good condition with full green foliage. A minimal approach to its management had obviously been adopted. The horseshoe shaped bole reveals a fused group of internal stems and it seemed possible that some of the shell on the south side of the tree was also made up of internal stems that have fused. This has perhaps been a larger girthed tree. I also had the impression that when the old whitewood has decayed this will take the shape of a tree standing on legs of living wood. The lowest girth was obtained at about a height of 15”, where 15′ 2” (4.62m) was recorded. About 1′ of this will be lost when one piece of white wood disappears.
