Chestnut trees are abundant here in the UK, both Horse chestnut and seet chestnut. looking at the fruits it is not a Horse chestnut (we used to play conkers with the hard bean type nut encased in the spiney husk), it could be a sweet chestnut though.

The tanins in the timber corrode iron tools, so don’t leave you tools without cleaning them off before you put them away. The timbner It looks similar to oak, I actually think it looks better because of the colour variations, dark, yellows, light/dark browns with wilder grain patterns
