Stouts &Winter makes a mention of pesticides and fasciation.

Yeah I think I've seen similar but these don't seem to fit. The thing about 
these is they appear to all intents quite healthy. I suppose the compaction 
from mowing and the like could almost be creating a sort of dwarfing root 
type scenario? Trouble is I don't know enough about herbicides, or dwarfing 
root stocks come to that.

One of the dense crown sites had me looking for different varieties, but none 
of the few listed in Cassells looked likely, while Van den Berk doesn't 
really help either. I'd have thought that if Artichokes were rushing round 
Ash variations in the 60s we'd've heard of some, but beyond Westhof's Glorie 
and Jaspida I've not heard of any, at least none that spring to mind.
