April 2004 – Tim Hills: An ivy tree attached at the base has been severed. A shed almost touches the tree. A bottle placed inside maybe 30/50 years ago has been almost swallowed by new wood so only a small amount is showing. No signs of hollowing. A good place to see how a tree visibly swells over removed branches (on side by shed). Girth of 13′ 10” (422cm) at 2′.
July 2015 – Paul Wood: One notable and two smaller common yews as well as two Irish yews grow within this well kept churchyard. In spite of a light covering of young ivy the tree was extremely healthy and looked after. The churchyard also is obviously looked after with pride. Girth at 60cm was 13′ 6” (411cm), less than that recorded in 2004. The bottle, noted at that time, has disappeared. No hollowing or rot noted on this solid tree.
