It looks like a gladiolus to me, but I'm not sure enough to put it in as an identification.
If this is wild gladiolus, its a very nice find, but it does not look like the picture of this species in my (old) copy of Francis Rose's Flower Key. He says that G. illyricus is found only in the New Forest in the British Isles.

Interesting - it looks like the photo in my Collins Complete Guide to British Wild Flowers,by Paul Sterry, 2006. Agreed, it does not look like the illustration in my copy of Francis Rose's Flower Key either and both books locate its distribution in the New Forest.
Where do we go from here? Cultivation perhaps. Regards
It is not Wild Gladiolus but rather one of the many cultivated species/hybrids.
Wild Gladiolus has much narrower more magenta flowers.
I think that you are right.
