March 2017 – Tim Hills: The notable yew is female and grows due south of the tower close to the perimeter wall. It has a hollow on its south side that starts at a height of 2′ and closes over at about 7′.
Girths were recorded as follows: 12′ 5” (378cm) at 1′; 11′ 11” (363cm) at about 2′, where somebody has hammered a nail into the tree; 12′ 9” (389cm) at 4′ over some ivy stems, which probably added 2” to the measurement.
The smaller girthed tree is male and grows SE. It leans considerably and had recently had ivy removed. Its girth was about 11′.
