I found this at the back of my garden which was left by the previous owner. Does anyone know what it is? I am in England. Many thanks

It looks like it could be lilac to me.

That's what it looks like to me as well.

I don't notice any buds, so you may have to wait a season to see the bloom (or it could just be late). If anyone around you has a similar shrub, these multiply by suckering and it may have crept under a fence from a neighbor. In any event, I'd keep it until it blooms then you can decide if you like it or not. I love lilacs, so fragrant!
