January 2000 – Tim Hills: The largest yew overhangs the road. It has a fluted bole with deep fissures and particularly red bark. Above about 10′ it divides into two, with further subdividing into upright branches on a tree with little lateral spread. Girth of 15′ 11” (485cm) at 1′.
2008 – Dave Kenny: Three yews at this site, the largest 5.10m (16′ 9”) at 0.3. The jug of water seen on the trunk in the 2000 is still there, the tree is now very overgrown.
Another near SE gate measuring 3.5m at 1.5 is also very overgrown.
A third, twin-stemmed, looks healthy and was probably a Victorian planting. Measuring around the two stems gives a girth of 3.58m, but the individual stems are less than 2m in girth at 1.2m.
