In 1789 the description of ‘a singular yew tree at Sardon Magna’ accompanies a picture showing ‘one tree growing within the decayed centre of another which has bushy growth’. This is held by the William Salt Library and so we are not permitted to show the image. In Arboretum and Fruticetum of 1838 is the following description: ‘A tree at Little Shardon, near Shareshill, in Staffordshire, had, in 1780, a singularly picturesque appearance, and formed one of a vast number of very old and large yew trees’. It has not been possible to locate where these trees once grew.
