    Could be several different things, from hogweed to various cultivated plants - can you post a more detailed picture including the stems please?

    Also, is this in a cultivated bed or a long-established wild patch?

    Does look like Hogweed growing up with Goosegrass/Cleavers around it.

    Cow parsley? If the leaves are matt.

    Hemlock if the leaves are shiny?

    Looks Hogweed to me. Just ordinary hogweed, not the giant one,

    It grows in my meadow Tony but soon disappears with mowing. There's none in those areas that are always mowed. Or if there is you can't see it which is good enough for me.

    looks like hogweed - be very careful as if you get the sap on your skin and it's sunny then your skin will burn and blister
