September 2004 -Tim Hills: Number 1 on the plan. It consists of a fragment and a 3′ high piece of stump. If this piece of stump was originally part of an internal stem that grew centrally in the decaying tree, it would indicate that this yew has been considerably larger.
2018 – Paul Wood: I did not measure, but also think that this is a fragment of a once larger tree. It is very squat with thin foliage. The living wood has many internal stems of various sizes hidden behind a central column of white wood that looks like a once much bigger internal stem, as well as another second white wood internal stem a little further away and to the north. In coming years this tree will appear little more than a young tree.
