But what is it?

Walking to the pub on Sunday (not back!) we saw this….

What a whopper!

 

It was about 8 inches long and quite amazing. However I have no idea what it is and am having problems finding it on the internet. Can anyone help?

Here’s a slightly different view of it…

Still don’t know what it is, but so shiny and lovely.

And just in case anyone horticultural is reading this (fat chance methinks), here is the leaf…

???

I have struggled to describe this when doing my search. Any help gratefully accepted.

See Ya xx
