Of the 3 yews the largest was recorded by Evans as “just outside the southern boundary wall of the church.” Whether this was once an entrance to the churchyard, or the yew was originally inside the churchyard is not known. It is certainly no longer accessible, but appeared to be about 15′ in girth.
