August 1998 – Tim Hills: Split and hollow. Part standing/part sprawling.
September 2017 – Paul Wood: A site with shrunken settlement earthworks in the surrounding fields. The ancient yew, growing at the east end of the church, was a mixture of deep green foliage and the occasional protruding dead branch. Many limbs are now touching the ground and the area under the tree has become a sea of elder, ivy and rubbish. I cleared a path through on the south side of the tree in order to take a photograph.
December 2014 – Tim Hills: Ground around the tree has filled with elder and other growth, so the visible bole fragments seen clearly in 1998 were almost hidden in 2014. The tree nonetheless supported a green healthy looking crown.
