Author's notes

I have now added a photo of the fungus and its surrounds. There were no trees within 2 metres and only a couple of big old dead tree trunks a bit further than that, but perhaps there is still enough nourishment in the roots for it?

This is an Amanita species though not enough detail to take it to species. These white ones are numerous and distinguishing the different species can be difficult - sorry. Amanita are mycorrhizal fungi as well so it was associated with the roots of one or more of the nearby trees. If you noted any species that is always useful data to have.
