Can someone please identify this flower
I think this is one of the milkworts, but plants on chalk are not my thing, so...

We live on the chalk and I think you are right.

I think it may well be (predictably enough) chalk milkwort.

Funny thing- I've just asked a similar question! :o)

It's very pretty, whatever it is.

It is most likely either Chalk Milkwort (Polygala calcarea) or Common Milkwort (P vulgaris). The best diagnostic feature is whether the leaves are broadest nearer the base or the tip. If you ever take a plant photo for identification reference, always remember to take one of the leaves as well as the flowers!
