Sambucus nigra (unconfirmed)
I'm fairly sure this is S.nigra but I've never ID'd an elder before. The elder around here all have black/purple berries. The berries are edible (although they do contain small amounts of cyanide and so shouldn't be eaten in large quantities). I think I read some people are more sensitive than others and so trying out a small number of berries would probably be a good idea to start with. The flowers can be made into cordial. The tree can be the host of 'Judas' Ear' fungus (Auricularia auricula-judae), perhaps only when the tree has died? In any case 'Judas' Ear' is edible and medicinal (although also dangerous in high amounts)
Some people wouldn't like eating the berries from this particular plant because of how close it is to the road.
