Very pretty unidentified wild flower

Found growing wild in shady woodland

Are they Gypsophila flowers? although the leaf is not right for Gypsophila the flower may be growing through something else?

No, Drc, not Gypsophylia - I know that well as there's plenty around in the hedgerows at the moment. It's something very delicate that likes growing in damp shady woodland - the flowers are very like 'London Pride' but the plant is definitely NOT Heuchera. The leaves are rounded and growing in small rosettes. It's so pretty it stopped me in my tracks when I saw it! :o)

Daft idea this! but could it be 'Snow on the mountain' struggling to find the light?

Sorry for delay, Drc. Googled it - Snow on the Mountain is a type of Euphorbia so - no, that's not it. I'll get it one day! ;o(
