several similar brackets found on dying beech tree
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
After quite a lot of searching on the internet I settled on the ID of Tinder Bracket/Hoof Bracket, but as they all take slightly different forms it's difficult to be certain. I welcome identifications from others as I am quite new to fungi ID. Thank You, Louise, Bolton

It certainly looks like a bracket fungus and is very similar to some of the other fungi shown on iSpot in the genus Fomes. I'm afraid that I don't know enough about fungi to give an ID though.
