    I think it could belong to the Cercis tree.  family. But the leaf shape I don't think is correct.

    I wouldn't be as precise as 'Dawn' for the first but it's certainly one of the pink winter flowering viburnums

    I think the second is a witch hazel, hamamelis

    In the sticks near Peterborough

    Another possibilty for the tree is a relation of the witch hazels called Parrotia persica or Persian ironwood. When the treeis older it has scaly bark like a London Plane. Leaves are shinier than Witch hazel and the floers are like small red witch hazel flowers inspring and not scented.
