I don’t think these are fruiting bodies. They look woody to me. Perhaps cankered burrs.

thank you David they do look woody and are definitely solid to the touch.

 

I have been looking all afternoon at cankers, fungi and other strange slightly tree related shenanigans on the internet but i still haven't even found a picture that even resembles what i have found.

 

The thing i find strange is they are hard and almost look like they are made from dried up resin of sorts but why the visable growth rings, why are they flat, why do they seem to be originating from one spot and radiating out, why are they growing sideways? and finally they seem to be growing out from an old bacterial canker which has been encapsulated.

 

when we tapped the tree it definitely had a different 'ring' (but sound solid) to it than the other ash near it which has got a bacterial canker running to about 15' up but none of these odd growths. 

 

I might send the pics to defra as i am stumped (pun intended)
