July 2007 – Tim Hills: There are seventeen yews in this churchyard, the largest, shown here, girthing 10′ 10” (330cm) at 2′. It is becoming hollow and its centre is filled with internal stems.
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).
Also noted here was the replacement of a felled yew with another.
