In 1998 Colin Howes measured 34 specimens that form part of a ‘curious avenue, mysteriously marking out the ghost of a woodland ride’. He found girths ranging from 3′ to 9′ 4”, with a mean of 5′ 7” – similar to those in nearby Sprotbrough chruchyard.
Edwin Pretty recorded 84 specimens of yew in this gorge at the end of February 2008.
