Source of earliest mention: 2017: Paul WoodNotes:
March 2017 – Paul Wood: The notable yew is the middle one of the trio and is seen in the first three photos. It is male and it grows half way down the bank. Girth was 12′ 8” (386cm) at the root crown. It has a fine fluted bole partially hidden by twiggy growth and has had a major cutback at some time. A small gap at about 5′ on the south side suggests that it is beginning to hollow. It was full of growth with a deep green foliage. A small gravestone on the SW side is being slowly consumed by the tree.
The fourth photo show the most northerly of the yews, a female with a girth of 5’/6′.
The 5th photo shows the most southerly of the yews, a female with a girth of exactly 11′ (335cm) at 1′ (30cm). This girth is affected by two large limbs removed from the south side of the bole.
