March 1999 – Tim Hills: SSW of the church. An impressive solid looking bole with hollow sections. Girth at the ground was 22′ 9” (693cm) in 1999 and 23′ 2” (706cm) in 2013, though the build up of soil on one side of the tree prevents accurate comparison. In 1999 branches dipped close to the ground on the side of the tree facing away from the church. In 2013 these branches had all been removed.
