Re: Yew in place names
Nov 28, 2005, 23:35
I havnt read all this looong thread so apologies if its allready been said.

I thought that 'Ull' in place names was a yew tree reference.
Named for Ulla/Ullr the Norse God of archers, skiing and yew magic.
There is a rather grand yew tree in martindale churchyard near Ullswater.
