Wild Mushroom Identification - Recommended Books for All Skill Levels:
Every amateur mycologist should have a decent library of books, here are the top five books I highly recommend for wild mushroom identification:
 
1) Edible Mushrooms: A Forager's Guide to the Wild Fungi of Britain and Europe  - The Best, Newest UK mushroom guide - Geoff Dann
3) Mushrooms: A comprehensive guide to mushroom identification  - This one is a proper belter with loads and loads of good technical data - Roger Phillips
4) Complete Mushroom Book: The Quiet Hunt   - A lovely book by a lovely man. Antonio Carluccio
5) Mushrooms: River Cottage Handbook No.1 - Always a favourite from Hugh's fungi specialist friend, John Wright

It is important to have at least 3 books so you can cross reference and cover as many species as possible

Hard to be sure from photos, but my guess is Clouded Agaric (Clitocybe nebularis). Very common at this time of year, often grow in fairy-rings in woodland or verges. Flesh has sort of fruity smell. Not edible (some books say they are, but best avoided).

Yes, Clitocybe nebularis.
