See NS3976 : Branched Bur-reed (Sparganium erectum) for further details, and for a view of entire plants. See NS3976 : Pool near Dumbarton Golf Course for a view of the area in which they were growing (including the pool that is visible in the background).

The present photograph shows the structure of the branched inflorescence; each branch has the (remnants of) male flowers above, with the larger and rather more spiky-looking female flowers below.
