The yew was obviously impressive. In a comparison with the renowned Darley Dale Yew, it was described as ‘nearly equal in size and beauty’. Its girth at 1′ was upwards of 8 yards. Martyn Price, present owner, whose family have owned the farm since the 1930s, has no record of the tree and reports that there is no sign of remains.
