The great yew tree in St Nicholas' churchyard, Brockenhurst, New Forest
The great yew tree in St Nicholas' churchyard, Brockenhurst, New Forest
This churchyard yew is more than 20 feet in girth (measured 5 feet from the ground) and it was found to be more than 1000 years old when it was carbon-dated in the mid 1980s. As with many yews of this age it has a hollow trunk, but it is not possible for a person to squeeze inside. The tree pre-dates the oldest parts of the church and would have been around 100 years old when the New Forest was established by William the Conqueror. (This image is a composite of two photos)
