In A History of the County of Warwickshire (vol 3, 1945) it is recorded that ‘In 1660 six parishioners accused the rector of wishing to cut down a yew tree in the churchyard ‘the like whereof is not to be found in all the diocese’. In 1730 Dr.Thomas, rector here, gave its height as 53ft and circumference as 18ft. 3 in. The tree was eventually felled in 1763.
