Yew trees

Cudham churchyard

Outside the church are two ancient yew trees, one at the south west corner and one at the south east corner. Both are older than the church - indeed, one may be about 1,500 years old. As yew trees were often planted in graveyards, this would suggest that the church was built on an already existing burial site.
