Yews may have been planted in the latter part of the 18th century when the barrows were included in the landscape design of the Antrobus Estate. Near a small copse known as Old King Barrows are found about a dozen yews growing near two burial mounds. At least two have been blown over, one of which continues to grow with its root structure still firmly embedded in the ground.
The largest girths recorded were 10’ at about 1’.
