August 2000 – Tim Hills: The larger of the pair grows close to the wall by a lych gate. It did not appear particularly healthy.
October 2013 – Tim Hills: The tree appeared in excellent vigour. It has a solid bole of about 6′ above which rises a thick central branch and many others; several of these are new wood wrapped around dead branches. By the wall the ground level is raised by about 2′. The tree measured exactly 18′ (549cm) at 3′.
June 2016 – Paul Wood: It was not possible to get a tape around the yew. Although the tree looks in good condition at present, its proximity to the wall may cause problems in the future.
