July 2000 – Tim Hills: SE of and closest to the church. The tree is hollow with two gaps. A fine straight branch rises above the hollow. There was a ‘bleeding’ area inside the tree. Girth of 18′ 6” (564cm) at 3′.
2016 – Paul Wood: This has developed into a tree of two halves. Its south side was covered in twiggy growth and a thin cover of ivy, while the north side was bare with no cover, making it possible to see the holes left where branches of the rotted away inner tree have been grown around by new living wood. The yew is hollow to a height of about 10′, with internal stems visible higher up in the tree. The ‘bleeding’ previously noted was not visible during my visit. Twiggy growth meant that it was only possible to measure at a height of 4” (root crown) where 19′ 5” (592cm) was recorded.
