Unknown plant/shrub

Unknow plant/shrub

This was on the moorlands, just a few meters from a woodland. Feel bad that I have no idea what it is.

My recollection of Myrica

My recollection of Myrica gale, is of those which grew in a Wildlife Trust site at York, the large buds which are either flowers or seed heads were resinous and fragrant, with the leaves aromatic too.

I read somewhere, a long time ago, that the buds were used as wicks/candles.
