May 2000 – Tim Hills: Solid looking. A large section cut off at 7’/8′, this must have supported at least three large branches. The photos show how rapidly ivy can grow and cover the trunk. Girth 15′ 2” (462cm) at 3′.
2008 – David Alderman: Girth of 4.70m (15′ 5”) at 110cm recorded – allowing for a little ivy. Solid bole, NE of church.
