Source of earliest mention: 1954: The Yew Trees of England - E.W.Swanton


May 2000 – Tim Hills: The yew was removed some years before 1954 when it lost a branch during a gale. Concern was expressed that if the topmost branch also fell it might endanger life. The Church Council decided to ‘have the tree cut off at its base, to avoid damage and possible loss of life’. The ivy covered base of its stump was measured as 10ft 6ins.(Swanton)
