Watch it as it ages,

Watch it as it ages, Psathyrella hydrophila, quite common in Britain, looks similar, the gills initially pale brown turn chestnut as they get older, and the stem is white and snaps easily.
If it is Psilocybe, be careful, some species are hallucinogenic/toxic. Though the stems on this are said to be fairly tough. :)
