2014 Tim Hills: The only yew on the south side grows inside an 18” high wall. Present bole is 2′ high from which emerge four trunks. There is much bulging close to the ground, where soil was once piled up against the trunk creating new root development. Girth of 490cm was recorded above this bulging.
In 2021 a girth of 532cm (17′ 5”) at 10cm was recorded for the Ancient Tree Inventory.
