Large bracket fungus growing between the buttress roots of an old beech tree. Sounds woody when hit. It was so tough I couldn't break off a sample. Photo 1 shows a £1 coin for scale.
Surrounding area was covered in brown spores. (Why don't they stick to the white areas of the fungus or have they all washed off in recent rain?)
