Under the ancient yew tree in St Martin's Churchyard, Martindale
Under the ancient yew tree in St Martin's Churchyard, Martindale
The yew tree is estimated to be 1300 years old. Documents in the church state the men of Martindale, who were famous as bowmen used the tree and others in the district to replenish their arms. See Link for more about the church. A photograph showing the extent of the yew can be seen at Link

Some websites state that the tomb belongs to Richard Birkett who was the first vicar of Martindale after the Dissolution of the Monasteries but he died on Christmas Day 1699 after 67 years whilst the inscription on the tomb cover here agrees that the person died on Christmas Day but he was only sixty years old when he died. Also the guide to the church states that the Birkett tomb is to the south-east of the church, this is to the north-east. See Link
