April 2004 Tim Hills: The front of the tree is disintegrating leaving pieces of stump up to 3′ high. A large internal stem is seen in the hollow. Much of the bole is ivy covered, which would have affected its girth, recorded as 15′ 11” (485cm) at 1′.
June 2016 – Paul Wood: A well kept churchyard with the exception of the oldest yew which grows on the SE boundary. At the time of my visit it was being used for the storage of churchyard waste. This has raised the ground level on the south side of the tree. Some thin twiggy growth and ivy covered the bole and needed some clearing to enable measurement. This was at 1′ on the NW side of the tree, where a girth of 16′ 2” (493cm) was recorded.
