I was given a present of a small load of various timbers most of which I can identify but I'm unsure of the centre one in this snap.
Any help please?

Looks like poplar or tulip wood (2 names for the same wood)

Thanks. Yes, that was my guess but as I've never actually had any Tulip wood I wasn't sure. It's a big lump about 4x6x50 inches. No doubt one day I'll find a use for it :)

+1 for the Tulip wood, and at 4" thick would be good for ripping off drawer sides to give a more stable stock.
