The magnificent yew tree in the grounds of St. Helen’s Church in Darley Churchtown.

The inscription states that the tree has stood for over 2000 years, although a certificate in the church from The Conservation Foundation Country Living Campaign states that the tree is approximately 1600 years old and has a circumference of 34ft at a height of one metre.
