Dyers Polypore  (Phaeolus schweinitzii)

A large polypore fungus that grows in layers from the roots or the base of coniferous trees especially pine trees. This polypore is a parasite rotting the roots and sometimes killing the host tree. Fairly common in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Found growing from the roots of mature pine trees along Ornamental drive in the New Forest National Park, Hampshire, United Kingdom.
