Was wondering if this species still grows here on Devonshire road nature reserve, Lewisham. There was not too much of it on the main reserve but on certain parts of the embankment it was rather extensive. Seem to recall the reserve also had plenty of slow worms in the early 1980's when it was one of the sites I worked on although don't have any pictures of them.
Incidentally the Heracleum here was nothing like as bad as on the railway embankments near Moscow where there are mile after mile of almost monoculture H. sosnowskyi which is almost as big.
