I wonder if this is a balsam, rather than an orchid? The well veined leaves point to something like this rather than an orchid which would have narrower leaves.
Thank you David ! It certainly looks like the other pictures on this site of Himalayan Balsam, especially the seed pods and leaves..I can now go and search for it in the RHS book.
Its most definitely Himalayan or Indian Balsam Family Balsaminaceae and not in the Orchid family (AKA Policemans helmet - because of its resemblance ) its a Riparian Invasive ie Along water courses. Given an opportunity seed pods will pop and fill your camera bag :-)
