This is Galanthus nivalis 'Flore Pleno', the "Double Snowdrop"
David J Trevan
The flower in the 1st and 2nd photos could possibly be the cultivar called a Common Double Snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis 'Flore Pleno'). It spreads by bulbs, not seeds.
David & hydrurga, thanks for your feedback. Given the location, I guess a cultivar is quite likely. I suppose even the wooded areas of the grounds would have been heavily managed at times over the years. John
Although it is a cultivar, Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galanthus_nivalis) says that it had appeared by 1703 and spread (and was spread) rapidly through northern Europe, so management of the woods might not have a bearing on it being there. According to the page, there are numerous cultivars of this species, and it lists some very interesting ones that "galanthophiles" have found and propagated.
