2000 – Tim Hills: Three stems rise from a short bole of about 2′. Two of these re-join at a height of about 15′ to form one. All lean towards the sea and are very straight. The yew is on a slope, and this combined with the twiggy growth and some spreading roots made girth difficult to record. I recorded just above 16′.
2009 – Tony Vowell: I looked at the grave stones around the remaining tree and noted that the one underneath dated from the early 19th century. It seemed fairly obvious that a flat area had been created to take the stone coffer and that some root damage occurred at the same time. The yew splits into 3 stems about 18” and measuring round the base at this point gave a circumference of just over 16′. Despite being so close to the sea the position is very sheltered.
