Yorkshire Fog Grass?

Slightly purple at base, not in clear purple/white stripes though so a little hesitant but this may be correct for Winter ID, I'm not very experienced.

I can't help with an id as I'm not very good at grasses yet(!), but I can recommend a good book called 'Grasses, Ferns, Mosses and Lichens' by Roger Phillips - lovely clear photos that may help you id your observation. Good luck!
