Butterbur (Petasites hybridus)

Thanks to those who identified it!
Plant growing in wet ground, pyramids of pink flowers, very broad leaves. Plant observed growing beside Llangollen Canal where it borders Whixall Moss in Shropshire. The Moss is a peatland being restored so ground is boggy and acidic.
