November 1983 – Reg Wheeler: He noted two main upright trunks and that the tree was walled on the southwest side to a height of 3′. He also noted that there had been a recent bonfire at the base on the east side and recorded a girth of 740cm at 90cm (24′ 3” at 3′).
April 1998 – Tim Hills: No notes taken during 1998 visit – a decaying sheep inside the hollow created an unbearable stench.
June 2008 – Russell Cleaver- A neglected church with a neglected, single yew. Set on a distinct ivy-covered mound this is a large unkempt tree that has a lot of bushy regrowth around its base. It was difficult to measure, but I recorded 7.92m (26′ 0”).
June 2015 – Duncan Lorimer: Dimensions were as follows: BHD 8.4 mtrs, spread 20 x 18 mtrs, height 16mtrs. Twin stemmed from 1.5 mtrs (split) then multi stemmed. Two major limbs removed opposite the church, tree appears in good condition.
