Wood Meadow Grass

In the woodland edge behind Clay House at Westvale, there is just one clump of what I believe to be Wood meadow grass Poa nemoralis. I have only ever seen this grass once before in Calderdale and it seems particularly scarce in our area. It is not mentioned in the Flora of Halifax and the West Yorkshire Plant Atlas shows only an occasional distribution.

Has anyone else seen this grass in Calderdale (or indeed at North Dean woods where I saw it today)?
