Tim Hills: Tree 4 on the plan, SSE of the church. It is a hollow horse shoe shape with a prominent internal stem. In 1999 a considerable mound of drying grass was stored beneath the branches. Girth was 14′ 2” (432cm) at 2′ in 1999.
2004: Girth was 14′ 3” (434cm) at 1′.
In 2012 girths of 13′ 11” (424cm) at 2′ and 14′ 4” (437cm) at 1′ were recorded.
In 2016 Paul Wood discovered what appeared to be remnants of old wood jutting from the ground. It seemed that he was looking at the last remnants of dying wood just visible on the south side of the tree, suggesting that this tree is a remnant of a once much larger tree. Girth was the same as that recorded in 2012.
