1992 – John White: The Queen Charlton yew was recorded with a girth of 370cm, probably at 1m.
June 2014 – Tim Hills: The yew grows on the perimeter above a wall that leads to Manor House. The wall has been especially curved to allow for the yew. The side of the tree facing the church has been truncated at a height of about 10′. Girth was exactly 14′ (427cm) close to the ground, trying to get lowest possible reading over thin ivy. A girth of 12′ 5” (378cm) at 3′ above the highest ground was also recorded. This also includes some ivy. Many branches have been removed.
