Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

I found these lovely mushrooms in mid September in deciduous woods at Roundhay Park, in Leeds, West Yorkshire. Does anyone know what they are please?

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

I'd say that your find has all the hallmarks of just emerging Phaeolepiota aurea, (Golden Bootleg).

They grow quite large and are quite spectacular at full size.

Regards,
Mike.
