Tree 2 on the plan, growing south of the church, is the most significant yew at this site. It was unfortunately being used as the dumping ground for churchyard waste. This prevented measuring at the base. Girth was recorded at a height of 15” where 19′ 0” (579cm) was recorded keeping a level tape. The shape of the bole suggested that it would be larger still at the ground. When measured two feet higher, where its limbs start to appear, girth had narrowed to 13′ 3” (404cm). The tree has a little ivy covering but looked healthy.
