Source of earliest mention: 1906: The old stone crosses of Dorset - Alfred Pope


The Old Stone Crosses of Dorset by Alfred Pope tells us that more than a century ago an ancient yew grew in this churchyard. ‘In the churchyard; to the west of the tower and near the spot where once stood a venerable yew tree twenty-eight feet in circumference’. Today these two smaller girthed yews grow to the west of the church.
