Is there a groove along the upper face of the stem? If so it's Common Hogweed
Heracleum sphodylium Not a relative of the Giant Hogweed so not dangerous. I used to pick armfuls for pet rabbits and goats. Another name is Cow Parsnip. It has a large creamy white umbelliferous flower like cow parsley on steroids which looks fabulous if left to dry for the winter frosts.
