A number of plants in this photo, but I assume you were referring to the sturdy-looking bedstraw in the middle. I would imagine this is wild madder, our largest bedstraw, but it could conceivably be hedge bedstraw or goosegrass.

I am looking closely at the photos in my 'British Wild Flowers'. Regards
