Thanks all.

 

Looks to be a variety of cumulus, but I'll add a few possible keywords with a disclaimer relating to my ignorance in these matters !

It's colloquially called a "mackerel sky."  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mackerel_sky

Agreed. The site also gives the scientific name or regular name of the formation. There is an old American song with a line “Ole buttermilk sky”. Bing Crosby has a version, along with Hoagy Carmichael. I think the most famous one was by Kay Kaiser, won an Oscar from a cowboy movie or something.
