The 1875 Penny Post noted ‘an old yew-tree’ at this site.
September 2009 – Tim Hills: A healthy looking male yew with thick green foliage throughout. Trunk appears solid, but on the south side is a hole with pieces of the original trunk showing and this can also be seen at the base of the tree. Behind this the tree is becoming hollow and one of the tall rising branches appears to be connected through internal growth. Also on west side of tree is a slither of old trunk which sounds hollow.
The following girths were recorded: 12′ 8” (386cm) at 1′, 12′ 7” (384cm) at 2′, 12′ 6” (381cm) at 3′.
With a girth of under 4m the tree is presently classified as notable. Because it displays veteran characteristics it will in the future be classified as V-con (veteran on account of its condition).
