The yew was planted in the late 17th century, some distance from the church. However when the north aisle was doubled in width in 1850, the NW buttress was built right up against the yew. Around the year 2000 the tree was considered to be causing damage to the church’s foundations. It was felled and found to be 313 years old. For a full account see www.tree-ring.co.uk
