There is little doubt that these trees are 'splendid' in the context of the townscape, ladybug CST is right.

They are a Salix, but not sure of the species - not convinced about pure 'alba', as the leaves, up close, don't look downy (i.e. white) enough. I wondered if they might more likely be 'cricket-bat willow', which is, I believe, a variety of alba?
