I am new to gardening and wanted some advise from those with more knowledge and experience. 

We have inherited a 10ft (what i believe to be) a viburnum.  It has not been looked after and been allowed to get out of hand. After giving it a prune (it was taking over the footpath) we have noticed the leaves and branches do not look too healthy. 

Is this treatable? Any advice on what it is? I have googled it and not sure exactly if its leaf spot, viburnum beetle or canker? 

Any advice would be greatfully recieved.

    Looks like Viburnum beetle damage to me.

    Me too.  I had similar to a large viburnum Tinus and it was flowering poorly.  I treated it last year and this year looks great.

    viburnum beetle has a distinctive aroma when active (not pleasant) so that may confirm (but you’ll have to wait a couple of months for that).
