    White bryony I think, GG.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    hard to see from the pics but white bryony looks favourite.

    Be careful when you dig it out to excavate around the root which will be like a very large parsnip (think it is also known as Devil's Turnip).  It can grow back from a snippet left behind and it will snap so find the source of the stem, move the soil away and you'll soon find the root top.  dig down with a trowel to get the whole root out if you can.

    This one didn't come back - dug out in 2014! image
