Now looks like cherry to me.

Definitely. The buds are distinctive in size and shape as well as their growth pattern.
Pleased o not prune this until all the leaves are out next year, because with stone fruits such as cherries and plums, there is a high risk of a disease calle Silver Leaf entering wounds while the tree is dormant. This can be fatal to the tree.


Plenty of flower buds equals plenty of cherries too, so if you are wanting to save them from the birds, plan how you could make some fine net"sleeves" to cover branches once you have nice fat green fruit!!

Great news, thanks!

:-D

Update:
The tree is now overshadowing a large proportion of my allotment, maybe 15 ft high? Is anyone able to give me advice on if this is a cherry tree that will produce fruit and/or the chances of it producing fruit? I don't have any knowledge on cherries. Attached are a few additional pictures that I took yesterday of the branch structures.

Thanks everyone

The leaves look like a cherry. In the third photo, bottom right, and a little bit out of focus, the lighter green blobs look like they could be small green cherries developing to me? Mine are at about the same stage now and will be ripening shortly. You might need to protect them from birds though if you are going to find out what they are like!
