Spetember 2004 – Tim Hills: A rare botanical phenomenon. Male and female yews grow a few feet apart. At a height of about 8′, branches from each tree appear to have been assisted in growing together. The trees are now inseparably joined with a branch thick enough to support a swing. Local children refer to the trees as ‘holding hands’.
June 2011 – The house has changed hands and the trees have been felled by the new owners.
