Leaf shape looks good for latifolia, according to the diagram in Stace.

Sorbus? Crataegus?

Sorbus latifolia agg. in Britain is supposed to have orange or brown berries (there is a continental species with red berries) - but then there's a colony near me of what I suppose to be Sorbus torminalis, only it has crimson, rather than brown berries.

Might it be a Crataegus (one of the cockspur thorn group)? (But I don't see any thorns.)
