Following on your comment, cat on a soapbox, I looked at lots of photos on Google, and it's definitely not white vervain, and maybe it isn't even verbena, although the leaves tell me it is! I'm dying to know, so will take it to local garden centre
The flower leads me to the laminacea family which is similar to verbena.
\you were right cat on a soapbox when you contacted me and said it's gypsywort or lycopus europaeus. How disappointing to find it's a weed, and not a type of verbena after all
Although not as showy as a verbena and a bit invasive, it is a nice pollinator attractant and has an interesting history as a dye and medicinal herb :)
