In 1984 Reg Wheeler measured the yew and recorded a girth of 597cm (19′ 7”) at 30cm.
November 2005 – Tim Hills: Growing close to the entrance gate at the east end of the church, this is the largest of a trio of yews. Growth is at the edge of a large stump, truncated at about 10′. Many branches spread horizontally from this height, while a single thick branch carries the growth upwards and another rises from close to the base of the tree. Girth was 20′ 8” (630cm) close to the ground.
