Oh yummy Dove, never had that before, looks delish 

I'll put the kettle on.

Is it custard powder added to the flour, sounds so yummy

No, you use one of those little cartons of readymade custard .

I've made it loads of times, it's delicious

1. Aquilegia

2. Arum maculatum with possibly the spear-like leaves of iris foetidissima to the right 

3. Haven't you got a picture of it in flower, or the leaves or something to give us a clue?

When I had a similar space I build some storage with cushioned seating on top - somewhere to put the compost and pots and trowels etc without it cluttering up the place.

Planting Advice

If there's chalk bedrock, it's likely that the soil will be alkaline.  You've not got much depth of soil - I'd look at shade tolerant alpines - ajuga, aquilegia, campanulas,  epimedium, tiarella, hardy ferns, lysimachia and violas.  You'd probably find that foxgloves would look lovely with that lot, and would be happy in those conditions.
