This is an excellent example of an elongated bole, breaking into three great upright branches at 6’/8′. These grow parallel to each other with further subdividing, presenting a tree of five branches rising to a considerable height. If this tree was planted when the Chapel was established in 1816, it might provide evidence of rapid growth in yews with elongated trunks. It might also be considered that the tree was here before Venn Chapel was built and indicates that this was a site of worship before the Chapel was built.
