Welcome!

My guess would be wallflower, Erysimum. It has four petals in the flower which suggests the Brassicaceae family. There are some pictures of similar coloured wallflowers in the NGA database but more closer to your colour here:

Staffordshire UK?
Erysinium Bowles Mauve is a perennial wallflower...very common in UK.
Lasts for a few years before getting woody and ugly.

I agree, looks like a variety of Wallflower (Erysimum) We have many in the database: https://garden.org/plants/brow... and here's the link to the one Silversurfer suggested:
Perennial Wallflower (Erysimum 'Bowles' Mauve')
