In spite of its large girth, the yew has the appearance of a tree that was planted when the present house was built. As can be seen in the photos, numerous branches that once developed at right angles to the trunk have been removed. It is possible that at one time these spread outwards from the trunk, perhaps to produce a yew hedge or another type of yew feature.
