The ‘lost’ yew was planted in 1666 by the rector, Mr Sayer. Its last recorded girth (1877) was 9′ at 18” from the ground. After suffering major branch loss in 1849, 1886 and 1893 its bare trunk was finally removed in 1926 following a damaging gale in 1925. A four year old yew planted in its place SW of the church in 1893 is recorded.
