October 2001 -Tim Hills: SE of the church. Hollow with a narrow gap on either side. The tree bulges above a height of 2′ and releases its wayward, spreading branches from a height of 8’/10′. Some of these have since been removed. Girth was 17′ 0” (518cm) at 1”.
September 2014 – Peter Norton: The largest of three yews grows near the southeast corner of the church. It is female and the bole and main stem are totally hollow, seen through two basal cavities in the lower bole. The tree has a break of crown at around 8′ and a girth of 17′ 1” (521cm) was recorded at about 1′ where at least six nails act as a guide.
