I had absolutely no idea what this was when I photographed it, but having spotted an observation of the giant horsetail on ispot, I dug these pictures out. Are they endangered?

Not endangered.

This species is not endangered. It is not common everywhere, but southeast Devon and west Dorset through Somerset into Gloucestershire is one of the regions in which it is common.
