Large Mushrooms

Observed: 1st November 2012 By: The_Kingfisher

Does anyone know what these mushrooms are? They're pretty big, I think they look great in my garden!

Can you pick one and take a photo of the gills and stem also measure the cap and stem ,also is it growing out of wood or just at the base of the tree in the soil

Of course! I've added some photos of the underside of one (half of the cap fell off when I picked it sorry!).
They're growing out of the soil, but there is a lot of woodchip mixed in with the soil there where we had an ash felled. (not my decision!)
I measured the one pictured-the cap was 16cm wide and the stem was 14cm long.
Hope that helps.

What a brilliant name for a mushroom! Thank you for identifying them for me.
