February 2003 – Tim Hills: An unexpected gem, clinging to a steep bank by the side of the road. Its roots can be seen growing horizontally for a considerable distance either side of the trunk. This is clear of low growth enabling its fine fluted nature to be appreciated. The tree was 17′ 3” (526cm) at 1′ above the upper ground level – a height of 6′ where the land drops away.
September 2015 – Paul Wood: The yew is as recorded in 2003 except for the advancement of ivy on its western side. Also the hole under the tree appears to be a lot larger. We measured at 1′ from the top of bank level as before and recorded 18′ 11” (577cm), a considerable increase in 12 years.
