When Ieuan Morris, a film history lecturer, wandered through St Peter’s churchyard in Llanbedr-Ystrad-Yw, Powys, he stumbled across something that stopped him in his tracks – a chair placed inside a yew tree. “A lot of these old yew trees are hollow,” he says. “I did laugh out loud when I saw it because I just didn’t expect to see a chair inside. I wanted to sit inside immediately.”

Fortingall Yew- oldest tree in Europe

Yew (Taxus Baccata) is a marvellous tree of myths and folk beliefs. Tree associated with longevity, death and rebirth, as it is quite common from young yew branches to spring from the dead trunk.

All parts of a yew plant are toxic to humans, with the only part of yew that is not poisonous being the flesh of the berries.

Yew wood not only makes excellent bows, but is widely used all over Europe in making of good luck and protection amulets for humans and livestock alike.

Sunburst against an ancient yew tree.


I came across this beautiful old tree in a churchyard in Stanmer Park just outside Brighton. I was visiting with @sammyrevill, who told me her children used to play in it when they were young. That’s a lovely thought.
