Chalk?

You can find Common Milkwort on chalk, so I don't think the amount of calcium carbonate in the soil is a good identifying factor.

I think it looks like P. calcarea too :)

Just added the underlying Geology for information. P.calcarea's preferred habitat is calcareous grassland I think, but my ID was based not on geology, just that I feel it looks more like P.calcarea.
I might be wrong and happy to be corrected. I agree entirely Bill that the geology alone is no basis for making an iD :)
