I think you may be right

I think you may be right David but I am not quite a 100% - I can't unjumble the leaves will ponder this.

Calendula

Must confess I'm not certain, the flowers look like Calendula but not sure about the foliage.

will go back

thanks for your thoughts - I can see marigold now (apart from middle whorl). I will go back to get pic of foliage (i.e. unravel from other foliage).

Marigold and Alexanders

I think the majority of the foliage is that of Alexanders (Smyrnium olusatrum) - and the flowers (and the leaves in the bottom right) are C.officinalis!
