January 2005 – Tim Hills: Tree 6 on the plan, probably the most significant of the ancients, is found by the perimeter wall west of the church. An opening in its western face reveals internal growth fused with the outer shell. Its girth of 20′ 10” (635cm) has been larger.
June 2007 – Russell Cleaver: Girth of 21′ (640cm) recorded. The tree has a large cavity displaying an internal aerial root.
July 2015 – Paul Wood: It seemed to me that this tree was once much larger in girth. A ground level measurement was 21′ 4” (650cm). Badger activity is making the tree very exposed with a large hole at the crown of the roots and other holes disappearing off towards the tree. One side appears to have once rotted away but has since had regrowth in the horseshoe shape. The other side, in spite of the ground hole has extensive twiggy growth.
