What kind of seeds are these?

Somebody has picked some seeds growing on a ‘tropical’ looking tree in the south of England (Crawley) and given them to me. Does anybody know what they could be? This clump is about 3 cm long.

These turned out not to be seeds after all but part of the dead flower of a Windmill Palm (Trachycarpus fortunei). Windmill Palms produce panicles of flowers in the spring and if they are pollinated will produce berries around August (with the seeds inside).
