Date of visit: 8-Apr-98

Source of earliest mention: 1903: North Staffordshire Field Club excursion


1983 – Reg Wheeler recorded the tree as follows: 570cm (18′ 8”) at the ground. Three stems a – 237cm; b – 229cm; c – 284cm.
April 1998 – Tim Hills: SW of the church. Three large branches from a short bole. The first photo shows a dead branch, the other two are very much alive and covered in thick foliage. The photo also shows a churchyard that has become overgrown.
April 2008 – Tim Hills: At some time during the last 10 years it was considered necessary to remove the dead branch. While that was not surprising, it would be interesting to know why the two living branches were also removed. It is another sad loss of one of Wales’s ancient churchyard yews.
