Source of earliest mention: 1913: History of the county of Worcester


A History of the County of Worcester, Vol 3, originally published by Victoria County History, London, 1913 has the following:
‘Rous Lench Court; The terraced gardens with their clipped yew hedges, laid out under the direction of Dr. W. K. W. Chafy, form an almost unique example of topiary art. The splendid yew ring surrounding a summerhouse on the south-east side of the house, together with a few single trees here and there and a fine avenue, remain as survivals of the original gardens, which could never have been large. The whole now covers about 7 acres’.
As well as terraced gardens with clipped yew hedges established over 300 years ago, a few single trees and a fine yew avenue, this yew arbor is perhaps the rarest and most unusual feature.
