October 1997 – Tim Hills: North of the church. This has possibly been a larger tree. Girth of approximately 17′ (518cm) recorded.
2015 – Peter Norton: Google map 51.05081,-3.052654. This female grows just northeast of the church. A thick ivy stem and lower epicormic growth means that its 16′ 10” (513cm) girth measured close to the ground can only be an indicator of its size.
