January 2000 – Tim Hills: A clean solid bole to 8′, above which many branches rise before sweeping almost to the ground all around the tree. It has a well defined main central branch with smaller branches rising parallel to it, one of which appears to have fused with the main branch. The bole beneath the seat was swollen to a girth of 22′ 7″ (688cm). Girths of 16′ 9” (511cm) at 3′ and 17′ 0” (518cm) at 5′ recorded.
2008 – Dave Kenny: The seat beneath the yew has been removed. A fine and very healthy tree, clearly well looked after. Girth of 5.17m (16′ 11”) at 1m.
2011 – Peter Norton: Girth of 17′ 1” (521cm) at 3′, where a nail marks the height.
