Source of earliest mention: 2011: Tim Hills


June 2011 – Tim Hills: Although the entire circumference of this yew can be seen, only a portion still supports growth. Ivy has taken hold in the dead section of the tree, and is so out of control as to be a threat to its survival. The tree appears to have been cut back to a height of about 8′ and many branches of similar size grow from this point on the living portion of this old tree. Girth 18′ 2” (554cm) close to the ground.
2016 – Paul Wood: The yew looks very much as described in 2011, but with more ivy. The smallest measurement at 3” from the ground has not changed and 18′ 2” (554cm) was recorded.
