It appears to be a larger example of the species seen next to the pavement at the Privett Road end in November 2012.

Seen near to Privett Road in November 2012.

Research indicates it is Infundibulicybe geotropa, also known as the trooping funnel or monk’s head, a funnel-shaped fungus widely found in Europe and (less commonly) in North America.  A large sturdy cream or buff-coloured funnel-shaped mushroom, it grows in mixed woodlands, often in troops or fairy rings and the cap  may reach 20 cm (8 in) in diameter.


The largest known fairy ring in Belfort, eastern France, has been reported at over half a mile in diameter and estimated at 800 years of age.
