April 2002 – Tim Hills: Tree B on the churchyard plan, NNW of the church. It is a classic example of a dead central trunk with two new trees growing on the periphery. These will eventually become two fragment yews growing about 6′ apart. Girth was 18′ 3″ (556cm) at 6″.
2013: The tree was no longer being used as a store for twigs, though the marks of burnt wood are clearly visible in photo 5.
