another umbellifer?

after a recent post where an 'umbellifer' flower proved to be a Valerian, I am struggling with the identity of another plant - I am slowly picking a few of these out now ... with help from here. Now that the Cow Parsley and Sweet Cicely have finished, the Hogweed is everywhere and lots of this was in a particular part of my locality - very common there but not everywhere ... any help, please?

    It could be anything! (Well, perhaps not...) The alpha and omega of umbellifers are the upper and lower bracts. Also the basal leaves are very important. And of course the fruit (but when it is in flower, it is in flower - we have to wait for the photo to mature!). It could be a Pimpinella, it could be something else.
