Found in woodland over Easter weekend

Hi

 

Over the Easter weekend I came across a plant that has so far remained unidentified, despite my photographs being viewed by talented amateurs and one educated professional. Can anyone help?

 

The plant is lying on a shaded bank in a deciduous woodland in Shropshire. The flowers were past their best, probably by a week or so, and I estimate they would have first flowered in very early April. The location is definitely "off piste" and may well have been undisturbed for decades.

 

The green leaves surrounding the flowers are found all across the bank, but do not seem to be directly associated with the flowers.

 

If you look closely at the first image, there is a single stem in the centre that shows the stalk, also pink, coming straight out of the soil with no apparent leaves.

This second picture shows the whole "clump" and its general location on the bank:

I have several other pictures.

 

Thank you in advance for any help.
