1911: A History of the County of Hampshire: Volume 4 recorded ‘a very large hollow yew tree to the north of the church’.
November 1998 – Tim Hills: Part of the bole has leaned outwards and split. Presumably it was either dead or unsafe and has been cut off. Girth will be reduced when it has decayed. The remaining hollow piece is 12′ high before dividing into several branches. Efforts have been made to rid the tree of ivy. Girth 19′ 4” (589cm) at the ground. At 3′, excluding the fallen section it was close to 21′ (640cm).
January 2003 – Russell Cleaver: Crudely pruned, cramped between adjacent property and north wall of the church. Part of tree absent, sad, leggy remains. 6.25m (20′ 6”).
November 2006 – Tim Hills: Girth of 18′ 5” (561cm) recorded is nearly a foot less than eight years ago and illustrates the difficulty of obtaining consistent results for this type of tree.
