Description:

This massive fungus measured 25cm across and 15-20cm high. It was growing in the gravel of driveway of a fairly modern house, under a birch, a horse chestnut, and a cherry. It has a volval sac, as just visible in the last photo. It is almost certainly an Amanita. The closest match appears to be A. Strobiloformis, but this doesn't seem likely in this area.
