Wild angelica is very common: it is a close relative of the garden angelica, angelica archangelica. It tends to grow in damp wood edges, with meadowsweet and the combination is so common it is used for a type of habitat - British NVC Community M27 (Filipendula ulmaria — Angelica sylvestris mire).
As with many wild food plants, the old leaves are tough and not very palateabe but the young leaves, when still curled-up, can be added to salads.
The second photo illustrates these leaves.
