help please re a tree disease

Hi all
I wonder if anyone can help, my father in law has a really cracking tree at the bottom of his garden.
Besides not knowing what it is (help again) it has acquired a fungus type growth on it, the trunk looks ok.
I have put some pictures on my website at
https://groups.yahoo.com/group/whytony/

just go to the site, join the group, and look in the pictures folder, click on them to enlarge, any help would be much appreciated

I'm not sure what is going on there. At first glance, I would think that it wasn't a disease but, rather a nutrient deficiency or a watering problem but, I don't know.

Anybody have any ideas?

whytony, is this whitish material something you can scrape off with a fingernail? and can we assume you are in the UK or Australia?

'cracking', that's a nifty word :P
