It's about 4m tall and is evergreen. Pics coming up.

    It's the one at forefront with the whitish, Y shaped bark.

    judging by the leaves only, Rubi, it reminds me of a Philadelphus (mock orange)

    According to RHS, Philadelphus are deciduous so can't be that.

    I don't think this plant flowers as I don't recall seeing any flowers on it.

    Yes, Philadelphus isn't evergreen. Maybe a Camellia japonica but as I've never grown them I don't know if the bark is right.

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
