Tim Hills: Tree 6 on the plan. In 1999 it was not possible to get close to the tree through thistles, nettles, elder and long grass. Beneath the tree was a large heap of composting churchyard grasses. The tree appeared to be of recent growth around a dead centre. A girth of 13′ 5” (409cm) at 1′ was recorded in 2004. The photos from 2012 show that this is the only yew that has been overrun by ivy. It it still used as a dumping ground for the churchyard grass clippings. Paul Wood 2016: Bole hidden behind twiggy growth and ivy. The yew had strikingly green foliage compared to the other slightly yellow tinged yews in the churchyard. In spite of the twiggy growth the tree was measured at a height of 10” and a girth of 13′ 7” (414cm) was recorded.
