Berries of the Yew tree - Martock
Berries of the Yew tree - Martock
There is a long densely planted avenue of yew trees leading from the bottom of the churchyard to the West door of All Saints. Although the leaves and berries are deadly poisonous they make a colourful display.
The yew was a sacred tree to the Druids and the Christians followed planting several in close proximity to their churches. Some Yews are extremely ancient and have survived centuries. The wood was used for making the famous English long bow of the Middle Ages.
