August 1999 – Tim Hills: The yew grows SSE of the church. It consists of 3 main branches from a bole of about 4′ – while a 4th had been removed. Area around base used at the time as a store for rocks, metal and decaying vegetation. Signs of fire/smoke damage on one of the branches. Girth of about 16′ 6” (503cm) at the ground recorded.
