Description:

This plant does not appear in any of my wildflower books so I assume it is an escapee. It was growing beside a spring fed lake in a woodland environment. Apparently it is usually pink but white versions do occur, as this one. Despite other o.b.'s it does not appear on iSpot list of names, either scientific or common.

Lesser knotweed

It's in Blamey, Fitter and Fitter. They say "naturalised by streams and other damp ground".
