In 2009 Shaun Burkey recorded the yew east of the main entrance path, with a girth of 314cm at 150cm. The engraving of 1872 has these words: “The ‘Welsh Burns’ John Jones (‘Talhaiarn’) is buried beneath the shade of the grand old yew to the right”. The grand old yew no longer exists, the younger tree seen today presumably planted as its replacement. The reason for its demise is not known. Assuming the old yew fell shortly after this engraving, its replacement will only be about 140 years old.
