2001 – Tim Hills: Tree 5 on the plan grows SW of the church and next to a yew stump. Many lower branches have been removed; its bole is largely hidden behind twiggy growth. Girth was approximately 17′ close to the ground.
2016 – Paul Wood: The tree could not be measured due to twiggy growth and nettles and brambles appearing on a small mound on the east side of the tree. This also contained a quantity of broken glass. Large portions of the tree are still hidden behind twiggy growth and ivy, but it still appears to be growing well. On this busy road, I observed that when large articulated lorries drove by about six metres west of this tree, the top half of its canopy and limbs move by several feet – as much as five – in the disturbed air. This could create a future problem from broken branches.
