Tim Hills: Tree 3 on the plan, west of the church. In 2001 a pile of straw surrounded the tree. The tree is hollow, with a large outpouring of branches above about 12′.
Girth of 13′ 11” (424cm) at 3′ recorded in 2012.
Paul Wood April 2016: The tree looked unchanged from 2012 except for the encroachment of ivy, bramble and nettles. This made measurement impossible.
