    oh I've had those... I would say that's Digitalis Dalmatian Purple...  part of the Dalmatian series...

    This is D. Dalmation purple, so you could be right.
    How can you lie there and think of England
    When you don't even know who's in the team

    I would say the OP is just Digitalis purpurea, there is a fair amount of variation

    In the sticks near Peterborough

    This is Dalmatian Purple... it's characterized by larger and more outward facing flowers,  such as in the first post... than those on purpurea...  I think the foliage is a bit different too..

    I think it looks more like "Candy mountain" the flower go all the way round and pile up on each other.
