Lots of fungi around at the moment after the rains. this is the boletus season and there are some unusual ones in milton keynes. not sure of this species as it was in a very busy place right outside the sorting office so just took photo and disappeared

Suppose it might be luridus

Suppose it might be luridus but there are no oak or beech around (only lime) and the soil is probably fairly neutral clay not particularly calcareous, unless they dumped some more calcareous material in that area. There used to be a calcareous clay area a few hundred metres away with lots of orchids until it was 'landscaped' with bits of acid sandstone rock being imported from miles away and all the soil dug up.
