The largest yew grows on a mound east of the church. Five major branches grow from its short bole.
2017 Paul Wood: I counted at least thirty common yews here of various size. Only the remarkable tree at the east end of the church appears to be of considerable age. A girth of 27′ 3” (831cm) was recorded at the root crown. It looked very much as previously described. The crown was full of foliage, though lower down smaller branches have been removed to allow access. There was a small amount of ivy at the base on the yew’s western side.
