Unknown plant.

West Somerset, England Eng

Not very good photos, but I saw this plant at a National Trust garden yesterday and I'd love to know what it is. It grows quite close to the ground, ambles through other plants and obviously spreads widely. Any ideas, please?

I wonder if its a small flower clematis? as the flower heads remind me of my Clematis 'Angel '(Tangutica group; aka Engelina) - just a thought!

Thanks, Denise - I don't think so, but it was a good thought. :-) Pity nobody seems to recognise it - I wouldn't mind having it in my garden.
