George Bellett wrote in 1856 that ‘there is a yew-tree known to the writer, at present growing in the church yard of Sampford Arundel, in the county of Somerset, but now hollowed by age, respecting which there is certain evidence, that more than a century has passed over it, without producing seemingly any change whatever in its state of decay ; it is now, to all appearance, as it was more than a hundred years ago’. A drawing by J.Buckley (1841) shows that the yew probably grew on the south side of the church.
