Is there a difference between 'bolting' and 'going to seed'? Our parsely was wonderful for quite a long time then large thicker stalks started to appear with sparse leaves, no flower heads that I could detect. I cut off the stalks as close to base as possible but more are appearing.

They mean the same thing - bolting to seed. If it is an annual it is coming to the end of it's life and setting seed.
