Notes:

October 1999 – Tim Hills: A clean bulging bole, girthing 6′ 6” more at 4′ than at the ground. Many branches sweep downwards among the tombstones. From 3′ upwards the bark is uncharacteristically flaky, a feature which extends high into the branches. Ivy had been recently removed. Girth of 15′ 9” (480cm) at 2′ recorded.
March 2017 – Peter Norton: The earliest record for a church at this site dates from 1157. The male yew grows near the southwest corner of the tower and the girth was noted as 15′ 9½” (482cm) at 1′, so no obvious growth in 18 years.
Of other yews observed in the churchyard, the largest had a girth of 9′ 3”.
