Hawthorn?

What is questioning my judgement there is definitely no berries on this tree.Could this be with the tree been diseased at the bottom?

Hawthorn?

When I was farming in the Cotswolds, I sometimes saw Hawthorn that appeared to have a mildew like white covering on the leaves, which I took to be a type of smut.

I did check

I looked for a "thorn-less" one before adding the comment - no result.
