Source of earliest mention: 1988: Churchyard yews of Gwent - J.Daryll Evans


In 1988 Evans recorded a girth of 575 cm (18′ 10′) at the base and 750 cm (24′ 7′) at 1m.
February 1998 – Tim Hills: A hollow half shell growing on a mound. Pieces of decaying stump suggest it has been larger.
In 2000 I recorded a girth of about 17′, measured as high on the bole as was needed to exclude the branches growing from the base of the tree.
2016 – Paul Wood: In this well kept churchyard the yew was not particularly inspiring. It was almost invisible behind thick ivy that covered the ground and all of its bole, continuing up into sections of the crown. If ever a tree needed some attention, this would be at the top of the list. Measurement was not possible.
