These are horse chestnut flowers from the conker tree. They produce a bigger nut which you can not eat. Unlike the smaller sweet chestnut that you can eat.
Found in local fields

Conker nuts are from the horse chestnut tree they are not edible. The outer shell of a conker has lumpy ,pointy bits and is thick and coarse.

They are great for putting a shoe lace through and having a game of conkers.

The sweet chestnut which you can eat has a prickly shell with finer points. Usually these are eaten at Christmas time.

Whichever tree it belongs to doesn't matter what does matter is that it's a pretty flower which has been well captured.
