Do you know the tree type Bob? Just checking it not a conifer.
I'll just add that this is a most unusual form, rosette like, but I can not think of what else would fit.

Auricularia mesenterica?

It has the look of Tripe Fungus I think.

Sorry, no idea as to tree species. It's by the top path through the gardens very close to the CEFAS buildings if you want to check. On a tree stump in the the flower border, northern side of the path.
