What Cranesbill?

I found this flower growing along an old railway line. It is not the normal deep violet blue Cranesbill – can anyone enlighten me as to its name? The petals were actually slightly pinker than in the photograph, and the seed heads were not very pronounced. Could it be Hedge Cranesbill or Bloody Cranesbill? I can’t remember ever coming across this particular flower before, and there was just one small clump of them, no others, in a wooded area, where many wild orchids also flourish.
