February 2006 – Tim Hills: A fine solid looking tree with living wood around its entire circumference. A single space at the base shows it to have large hollow spaces within. Large girth retained for a considerable height. 22′ 4” (681cm) at the ground recorded (included some ivy) and 20′ 3” (617cm) at 2′.
September 2014 – Peter Norton: The yew grows just north of the tower. It has previously been recorded as female, but the absence of arils or seeds on the ground suggested that it was male. There was much lower growth on the bole which has a bulbous appearance on the south west side of the tree. Measured at about 2′ 6” where two nails were embedded obtained a girth of 20′ 6” (625cm).
October 2015 – Tim Hills: Ivy had been removed and it was possible to appreciate a very fine tree, one which retains its considerable girth to a great height. A single hole at the base showed that there are hollow spaces inside what is a solid looking tree.
