I should know, but I don't. Pretty sure that it's not cryptomeria spp. 
Thanks

Cryptomeria japonica can look very like Juniper when young shoots, that looks pretty close. Otherwise Chinese fir? Or one of the sequoia family. If it was Spring then Swampy leaves look a bit like that?

Any less fuzzy pictures of the seed cones? Not a fir specialist, but its always a good time to learn more.

Good call on the cryptomeria Yorkshire Brummie, it's been confirmed! The cones are about 25mm, AJStrees.  Thanks for looking,  I haven't encountered C. Japonica as often as C. Elegans, so although it looked familiar, I couldn't confidently ID it!

That’s a good do Swampster
Tree ident can be a right head scratcher, especially some evergreens, seeing them in the green is never quite like the piccies in the books. The great thing about our job is we are always seeing something new/different and we never stop learning. I’ve got some lovely elderly clients who have brains like botanical encyclopaedias, they can make you feel a bit of a dunce sometimes 🤣
