Checking some images online, I'd say you're spot on with betony for the second one, Paul. The first one is proving a bit trickier. Many thanks for your input.

Woodland flowers North East UK

Would anyone be able to help me out with the ID of these two, please? Both were growing in a rather damp, dark, mainly deciduous wood. Many thanks.

Cheers, KC. Yes, it certainly caught my eye. There were several of them at different stages of blooming, but this one just looked perfect.

Orchid ID North East UK

Could anyone identify this for me, please? It was growing in an unmown area of cliff-top grassland. Having looked online, I thought perhaps pyramidal orchid?
