White Spindles

We spotted this interesting fungus in the fields above Uley today.
We had not seen this before but think it is Clavaria Vermicularis . The common name is white spindles which seems a good description of its appearance.
It is widespread throughout the Northern Hemisphere but not common and is reported to be edible but not really worth the effort of collection!
