August 2000 – Tim Hills: The smaller of the two yews grows at the churchyard entrance. It was described as having a circumference of 14′ at 3′ in 1852.
In 2000 I recorded 14′ 10” (452cm) at 1′.
2013 – Wim Peeters: The tree, which has a healthier appearance than the larger older tree, has a rounded crown, and a short, very irregularly formed stem. On the SE side the stem is hollow. Also on this side some large branches have been cut and a public toilet built close to the tree. This was not in situ at the time of Henri Gadeau de Kerville’s 1930 photo.
