Peter Norton 2018: This younger female yew grows close to the south entrance. It is enclosed by a circular stone slab wall. It had a girth of 9′ 6” at 1′ above the top of the wall. On its trunk could be seen cut marks where ivy had been removed. A few metres to the east is another yew that was probably of similar girth but could not be measured because ivy has been allowed to dominate the tree.
