Yew Trees, Lytchett Minster
The European yew (Taxus baccata) has a reputation for longevity. Whilst there is no direct evidence to support the view that yew trees were associated with pagan worship it is not hard to imagine that they were. The yew, a tree symbolising longevity, death and rebirth, became woven into folklore and its association with churchyards may simply be that in certain circumstances its foliage and fruit can be poisonous and in medieval England churchyards were one of the few places fenced against stock.
