Plant ID please

Happy Bank Holiday all! Please can anyone ID this plant growing at the base of a friend’s fence? I’d have said an asplenium, except that it has long stalks and spikes down the back. Many thanks, Johnny

    Teasel. Loved by bees, and later goldfinches eating the seeds.
    East Anglia

    I'd say teasel too.
    It's definitely not an Asplenium  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
