I took this photo near Stratford upon Avon by the side of a road. Can anyone identify this flower?

MY guess would be Centranthus ruber coccineus, also known as red valerian. See this picture (from here):

Could be pink allium, considering the thickness of the stem?

    $\begingroup$ Allium is an onion; they're monocots (would have blade-like leaves from base, not stem.) $\endgroup$ – anongoodnurse Jun 4 '15 at 8:04
