The 1911 description provided more information: Adjoining the building on the south way was a bank and ‘an ancient yew tree still flourishes nearby’. Hen Eglwys no longer appears on the Ordnance Survey maps and the yew is all that is left to mark this site. Compared to photos taken in the 1990s it appears to be in poorer health. However one small upright branch was flourishing and as long as the tree is left alone this should be sufficient for its revival.
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).
