    I have my doubts whether this tree is Q, robur! It could possibly be Q. petraea! Perhaps it is neither.
    Hopefully a member will recognise the sp. I will continue with 2-3 additional photographs in the reply box. In the reply box I have included the fruit etc. that I found beneath the tree. I don't know what has happened to all my photographs. Let me try again.

    Distinctly pubescent shoots excludes pure Q. robur. My guess would be Q. pubescens, or a hybrid between that and Q. robur.

    The final pic is a gall.

    The other thing that would exclude Q. robur is the long leaf petioles, as that species has nearly sessile leaves.
