Definitely Euonymus but was

Definitely Euonymus but was it E. europaeus as I think there are some other species and cultivars that are often planted and may have more spectacular fruits than the native one.

Euonymus!

You may well be right!This plant was photographed in a woodland burial ground near Bournemouth. The only Euonymus cultivar I am familiar with is E. europaeus 'Red Cascade'.
