Greengage Plum Tree problems

Hi, new to the forum here :-)

We moved into an old farm approx 3 years ago, we have a small orchard with one large cooking apple tree, which bears lots of fruit every year, two smaller pear trees which also do well and two plum trees. Two years ago the plum tree had loads of soft juicy fruit, plums in abundance, then last year hardly anything. I read that some times the trees work on a two year cycle ?  However this year it's the same story, hardly any fruit on the plum trees, and what bit there is seems hard and blighted with brown scabs. The fruit is mainly split open and also the leaves don't look too good.  I'm no gardening expert, but I need to try and rescue these two trees.  I enclose some photographs to show the problem.  And advice is welcome. Thanks
