Please can anyone tell me what sort of fungus this is and is it safe to move it. It smells horrible

Whichever it was, it is no more. It’s done for. Dead. Finished its life’s work. Just pull it up and throw it away. 🙂
Apophthegm - a big word for a small thought.
It is too old and decayed to identify now. It will dissolve away in a few days on its own but you can safely remove it if necessary, just wash your hands afterwards like you would when doing any gardening.
There is one called Pisolithus tinctorius , also known as dyemakers puffball as it yields a dye, aka dog turd fungus. As steephill says, too far gone to identify now.
You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things.
