Things that look like cow parsley part 3

Hogweed is at its most handsome this month,

and is joined by greater burnet saxifrage. GBS has white flowers like a delicate cow parsley but is easily distinguished by its leaves, which are glossy dark green. According to my flower books, it is not particularly common across the UK but it is growing in the lanes around South Brent and at the top of Green Lane. It is abundant in the verge along Bittaford Road. Its name is a mystery as it is neither a burnet nor a saxifrage and isn’t particularly large.
