Is this a violet helleborine?

I noticed commom helleborines growing near me in Robin Hood's Bay last year when they were in flower.  This year I have been watching them grow but am now convinced one clump of them are violet helleborines.  They are 15 - 20 cm high, five stems growing together,  narrower leaves than the nearby common helleborines and they are still some way from flowering.  This plant has never been recorded in this area so I would like my identification confirmed and the location recorded.


I've taken another photo from above showing that the leaves are narrow all the way down.  It is on a disused railway line so I fear it may not survive to flower.
