Are there any experts on fungi out there who can identify these magnificent fungi that I found growing together in my south facing lawn?

To give a sense of scale the width of the fungi left to right across the picture is a bit more than the length of a housebrick. I should think they are each about 6inches across the diameter.

I found them growing to the south east of my silver birch tree but still under its canopy.

    Definitely Boletus, I get the larch variety every autumn. Supposedly edible but  I've never tried them! Remember, many, many years back, seeing Blewitts or Bluelegs on sale in Leicester market but generally you have to go to France or Italy for wild mushrooms.

    Perhaps I should offer them to a local restaurant?
