Source of earliest mention: 1875: The Penny Post


January 1998 – Tim Hills: There is no trace of the second lost yew. The 1875 Penny Post contained the following description of two yews: ‘One is situated close to the south porch, which it completely overshadows; the other stands in the centre of the churchyard, and also on the south side. This latter tree is of an immense size, and supposed to be from 500-700 years old. It is still in an excellent state of preservation, and the admiration of all who visit the churchyard. I once measured its girth, which amounted to nearly ten yards. The one standing by the south porch is evidently of much younger growth’. According to this report both old yews were on the south side and there is no mention of a yew on the north side.
