This plant is ubiquitous in Britain, especially along riverbanks.

Common hogweed is, but not giant hogweed.

I wonder if someone planted this deliberately knowing what this plant can do to humans. The fact that it showed up out of nowhere makes me think that this happened.

It was planted deliberately- at least in the UK and U.S. it was. Not due to it's toxicity though. It was planted as an ornamental landscaping plant because it's a huge lovely plant.
