Churchyard Yew tree pollarded

The Yew tree to the left of the path has been significantly cut back to bring it back to a manageable size for topiary and to enable visitors to see the Church better.  Huge thanks to Nick Holmes as well as Andrew Auchterlonie, Charles Horne and Phil Fifield for their physical help with this work!


The larger branches were donated to Will Lord of "Beyond 2000 B C" who engages school children in prehistoric experiences, in this case making long bows. Smaller wood was enjoyed by parishioners in their wood burners!

Later works will include a new path surface to further improve access for visitors.
