Perhaps...

Sorbus

Am familiar with well known species .Location tells us this is must be common to commerce & landscapers unless this was bought by a private individual from a specialised source.Locals may well know the history of this splendid tree.

Thanks. I don't think its actually very old... I'll ask at the surgery next time I pass to see if anyone remembers where it came from.
