Ben Mosley, 31, was walking in his fields in Chelmorton with his son Harry, three, when they found the large mushroom.

The horse mushroom, which is edible, weighed one and a half pounds and was 10.4 inches by 8.

Ben said: “I couldn’t believe it when I saw it - I have never seen a mushroom that big!”

He took the mushroom home where it went on toast for him, his wife and son.
