Common Comfrey1

I could not get any closer as there was a river in the way, but this looks like Common Comfrey.

Difficult plants these! The leaves do not look decurrent enough for S. officinale. Could be a white S x uplandicum or S. grandiflorum.

Me too

For same reasons as Cicuta58, I am also doubtful about this.

In Cambridgeshire one also has to consider S. officinale subsp. bohemicum, but it doesn't have the right look for that.
