Did you notice

If there was any latex produced when it was broken - it looks rather like a Lactarius?
It would also help the more knowledgeable on the site to know what the surrounding trees are or had been.

There might have been a slight milkiness in the 'root' area. The habitat was mainly bracken, grass and bramble. Nearest tree would be a large Hawthorn, about 10m away.

Looking really closely at the second photo I (Think) you can see some latex at the very furthest point of the stem, I might be wrong though :) ben
