Notes:

December 1986 – Churchyard yews of Gwent – Revd J.Daryll Evans: “There is a yew at each of two corners of the walled churchyard.” The largest he mistakenly described as growing SE. He recorded a girth of 544cm (17′ 10”) at 1m.
2021 – Tim Hills: Its position is in fact south of the church but at its west end. Girth was recorded at the height of the top of the wall and 18′ 3” (556cm) was recorded. The 2nd yew is a young tree that grows NE of the church.
