Could this be a lime tree (citrus)

W
We went out for a bike ride early this morning to collect apples from an apple tree along a cycle route we ride, was a shame as since last Autumn it has been felled.  However we saw this tree and the fruits look very much like limes (didnt know whether they grow in our climate) any one know what this is?

    I'd say it's a walnut
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Try picking one.
    Peel of the outer green covering.
    It will reveal a walnut.

    I walk past a huge old walnut every day on the fields where I walk with my dog.
    A few days ago there were hundreds of fruits on the tree - next day there were none. It happens every year.
    The Essex squirrells time it to perfection!

    What I don't get is where do they store them?? hundreds of fruits disappear overnight, there must be a huge mound of walnuts somewhere

    Our squirrels time it well too,  I think we manage 1 or 2 each year despite a large crop. My OH says our squirrels run a wholesale business supplying the district 🤣

    If the squirrels don’t get them the crows do.
