Whilst out walking the dog in some local woods I spotted this fern which I really like the look of. It maybe common I have no idea but it really stood out amongst the bracken, may be one for your fernery Fred. I really like the sparse ladder appearance.
That looks a bit like the Shuttlecock fern, Matteuccia struthiopteris, corky. If so I have a few pots of small ones from the Scottish Estate. It gets quite tall so I'll have to plant mine on the Fernery edges to help separate the area off.
I have had a bit of a google around and Blechnum spicant seems to look very similar, also known as hard fern or deer fern , there is no feathering to the edges of the leaves and very widely spaced , I think there were other ferns that matched up to your suggestion near by . I am sure the dog will drag me over that way pretty soon and will try and get a few pics of this and some of the other interesting looking species.

dvg: ...where the Ys are worn notwithstanding, there is a lot to consider - inside out, upside down, turned backwards, at halfmast, waistband rolled in or out, the tilt, and all of the combinations and permutations of these subtleties and others not mentioned
