In 1984 Reg Wheeler measured the yew and recorded a girth of 733cm (24′ 1”) at 40cm.
November 2005 – Tim Hills: On raised ground close to the lych gate, SW of the church. Two large pieces of stump remain from the original tree. Attached to these are two branches, large enough to suggest that it was cut back a very long time ago. It has made a good recovery. Girth 24′ 5” (744cm) between 1′ and 2′.
