    It is a wild arum. Here is a site that tells you about it.

    Hi Shelley, it's Lords & Ladies aka Cuckoo Pint (Arum maculatum) a British wild plant.  The poisonous berries contain seeds which make this plant spread rather invasively, so I always remove the stems as soon as the berries look like they'll start falling, but do leave them as long as possible to admire their beauty. 

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
