This female yew grows at SU3256927874. Taping was difficult, though 20′ around its sloping base was recorded. An estimate for the main stem was 16′ (488cm) at 4′. The dead upright stem, which may be an offshoot of the tree, is not included in the measurement. Down the pit, on the edge of the rootplate another large offshoot has died and broken away. The foliage of the tree looked thin and grey.
