where was this taken and at what time of the year? what was the colour of the spur?

You can see the location and date in the observation details (look at the location part and date of observation part), you can also see the spur and sepals in the image itself.
early Dog Violet (Iam new to this sorry about not knowing other details)
Why do you think its early dog violet, I thought that had few or no hairs whereas these plants were all very hairy. I could put more pictures of different plants from this population or closer up bits if you think that would help but from my reading of the wildflower guides I don't think they can be anything other than hairy violet, although do accept that this group can be a bit tricky.
I agree with Mike. Very hairy plant - V. reichenbachiana is more or less glabrous. The only other Viola which is this hairy is V. rupestris, but that has pointed sepals (as indeed does V. reichenbachiana) and this plant clearly has blunt sepals.
