I think this is unlikely to

I think this is unlikely to be Hoof Fungus, as this tends to be much more northerly distributed (usually found on Birch in the North).

In the south, Hoof Fungus is found on beech, but by the shape of this (width in proportion to height) I would think you are more likely looking at one of the Ganoderma brackets, such as G. australe.
