Internet article at www.wadhurst.org.uk reported that ‘The people of Wadhurst woke up on the morning of 16th October 1987 to much devastation. Hurricane force winds had blown through the area causing trees to be uprooted.One of the two ancient yews in the churchyard was blown down’. The yew still standing girths about 10′ so the ‘lost yew’ was presumably of a similar size and age.
