IN THE CHURCHYARD Many older English churchyards contain one or more Yew trees. There are several theories as to the reason for this – Druids, Archery or, due to its poisonous leaves, a symbol of death. This specimen in Loose churchyard is over 1500 years old and measures over 33 feet in circumference
