Site Notes

RCAHMW/1911, 60: `The church is practically a modern edifice, having been erected on the site of the former church in 1870. The roof timbers were utilised...The churchyard is circular. It contains a yew tree of great age, which has split into several parts and become much contorted, though it is still in full vigour'.

Macalister/1922, 214: `It is not impossible that the yew tree (to which, I am informed, experts assign an age of 1,500 years) was planted over the grave to which the stone belongs'.
