March 2012 – Tim Hills: Tree 6 on the plan grows ESE of the church. A fine solid looking trunk seen from the path, but is hollowed out with internal growth. Signs of fire damage in the hollow. Girth was 17′ 8” (538cm) at 2′, above the embedded stone and pile up of soil on its western side.
2016 – Paul Wood: Yew 6 was in need of attention. On the ground large amounts of churchyard waste surrounded the tree, raising the ground level and almost covering the gravestone leaning against it. Ivy, brambles and nettles were beginning to take hold though some were removed for the photographs. The canopy had a thin covering of foliage so it was possible to see a number of dead and broken branches. Since this is the most exposed tree at this site I suspect that the bad storm at the beginning of May 2016 may be partly to blame. This is an otherwise fine looking yew, with living and dead wood intertwined around its hollow bole. Measurement was not possible.
