As well as the 99 yew trees in the churchyard, St. Mary's is well known for its annual "Clypping ceremony" in September. The ceremony involves locals joining hands round the church to form an unbroken chain andthen singing the Clypping Hymn as part of an open-air service. It dates back to 1321.

I hope you like this different view of the church and the yew rees.

Thank you for stopping and having a look at the previous up-loads this week.

Have a nice day,
Jean-NoŽl

These are again excellent shots, like both of them.
I used to save the clippings from Yew trees and send them off, are used for making cancer fighting drugs.

I often used to wonder why most of the Yew Trees were in Church Yards, apparently it is because the branches of the Yew made good long bows that did not snap during use due to the resin in the Yew.
The Priest was the only person who would allow the Yew to be used for Bow making.

Fine shot, with the camera not your Long-Bow.

I understood that the reason Yews were often restricted to the churchyard, as well as being used for bows, is Yew berries are poisonous to cattle/deer/horses. They couldn't graze amongst the graves.
