March 2004 – Tim Hills: The yew grows above a steep drop to the road below. Its bole of about 3′ divides into three main branches. The bulgy section by the road is probably the result of managing the tree to prevent branches spreading across the road. On the day of the visit several feet of drying/decaying grasses were stored beneath the tree. Girth was 13′ 10” (422cm) at 3′.
