Tree 3 on the plan is the youngest of the yews and grows SE of the church. At its narrowest point at the ground girth was 10′ 4” (3.15m). It is solid with no rot or hollows, but was covered with brambles, ivy and other plants. We cut these back to measure the tree but they will soon encroach again.
