With a girth of under 4m the tree is presently classified as notable. Because it displays veteran characteristics it will in the future be classified as V-con (veteran on account of its condition).
Also noted in this churchyard (2010) was a male yew, north of the church, with a girth of 9′ 6” (290cm) at 1′.
