Dear experts, there is a mystery tree in my garden, here are some photos. In the autumn it has small red berries and there are 1 inch thorns along the branches. Many thanks for your help!

    It looks a bit like a variety of Hawthorn, possibly Cratageus x Dippeliana?Image result for crataegus x dippeliana

    I'm thinking Hawthorn as well but don't know the variety.

    Widely planted in the 1970/80s , I think it may be the hybrid 'Broad-Leaved Cockspur Thorn' (Crataegus x prunifolia) .
