This yew grows to the west of the north churchyard entrance. There is well established internal growth and evidence of the rotting and decayed outer trunk. Its small girth does not take into account the missing trunk.
With a girth of under 4m the tree is presently classified as notable. Because it displays veteran characteristics it will in the future be classified as V-con (veteran on account of its condition).
