Allen Meredith’s Gazetteer in The Sacred Yew states that the yew was removed around 1830. However the following description in 1833 suggests that it was later: ‘On a farm called Mannest are the remains of a cist-vaen, under an aged yew-tree, and surrounded with stones apparently from a dispersed cairn, under which it had been concealed for many ages’. The relic at that time was thought to be either Druidical in origin, or the remains of St.Illtyd’s hermitage. The O/S map calls the site Ty Elltud.
