Not sure about this so I asked Zigs. He suggests asking you if the leaves smell like 'Vicks' ? He says it looks like one of the Eucalyptus family.

While I can't rule out the possibility that this is a specimen of a rarely-planted Eucalyptus, the adult leaves and bark of this tree do look very much like those of Cider Gum (Eucalyptus gunnii), which is the most commonly planted gum tree (Eucalyptus) in the U.K.
Cider Gum is native to Tasmania and has been reported to sometimes grow to 35 meters in height.
