Tim Hills 1998: The yew grows north of the church inside a well maintained protective fence. It appeared to be struggling valiantly for survival, with its sparse foliage full of green vitality. It has a hollow bole with branching above 8’/9′. An approximate girth of 17′ was recorded at a height of about 3′, just beneath a bulge.
2018 – Peter Norton: The male yew grows opposite the north wall of the church and is enclosed within its own fencing. It is overgrown with thick ivy covering much of the bole. It is also surrounded by various shrubs that are all competing for moisture. It was not possible to re-measure with any accuracy.
