April 2002 – Tim Hills: A large space separates these two well established fragments. A girth of 26′ 9” (815cm) at its narrowest, about 6” above the ground, was recorded.
2019 – Helen Leaf: The ancient male yew here is at the NE end of the church, with its tall canopy reaching close to the ground and covering the trunk from sight. You enter the churchyard from the north and see the tree to the left of the church. The path round the church means that it can be approached from either direction. It fills the space between the end of the church and the tall hedge boundary of the churchyard. The ground around the yew is slightly overgrown with grass and nettles, but it is possible to step through these and the branches and into an area within to see the trunks. Nails had been hammered into the trunks at a height of 35cm. Slender aerial roots were visible in one trunk. Overall girth was 8.42m (27′ 8”) at a height of 30cm. The individual trunks were also measured at 30cm, the larger was 5.78m (19′), the smaller 4.51m (14′ 9”).
