2006 Tim Hills: The yew grows SW of the church. It is a fine yew split into two halves, each hollow with internal growth, and gradually healing. The mound conceals the common origin of these two halves, so girth may well have once been more considerable. Girth was 23′ 9” (724cm) close to the ground, rising to 25′ 5” (775cm) at 3′.
November 2017 – Peter Norton: A male yew growing west of the tower. Initial observation would suggest that this was two hollowing stems emerging from a small mound. But it could also suggest this was once a fine and large tree that has split into two halves. Measurement was difficult but a girth of 23′ 8” (721cm) and 23′ 10” (726cm) was obtained near to the ground.
