the last one, if it's the plant on the left, is poppy, not the red one but the sleepbringer, i think

Thanks. The street there has a few of them. It's opposite the sports centre. I spotted a couple more at other garden walls there, but inside the driveways. There are also several similar big ones at St Andrew's church in the high road, on which the flowers have come out and they are red. I have a picture of them I've been meaning to post from the other day, getting a few together for another post. :)

The three little plants there are the same type, seemingly.

definitely poppy (papaver, but probably a sub species of somniferum rather than rhoeas judging by the seed capsule)
