June 1998 Tim Hills: Though solid in appearance, a vast hollow is revealed thorough a gap at the ground. This hollowness extends high into the tree. I measured the yew in 2003, recording a girth of 19′ 11” (607cm) at the ground and 22′ 5” (683cm) at 5′.
July 2007 – Steve Kenny: It is a fine tree and being well looked after by the church. I measured its girth as 6.09m (20′) at 0.2m. The adjacent plaque says that it is estimated to be 1200 years old.
May 2013 – Peter Norton: The large female yew grows close to the northeast corner of the church. It has a basal cavity on the south side of the tree and is quite hollow to a significant height. Girth was recorded as 20′ 1” (612cm) at about 6” from the ground where four nails indicate the height.
