Tim Hills 2008: In Oulton’s guide is the following description: ‘Opposite Eastour is Westour, where is another remarkably large yew-tree, whose body is 21 feet in circuit’. This no longer exists.
Two younger male yews, with girths between 11′ and 12′, grow at the north and east end of the church.
In a later edition of Hutchins History of Dorset, first published in 1774 is the following: ’21ft girth yew removed by 1860′.
