Nearly 2 months since i last posted a photo on here.
Found this around 18 months ago, when i last went to Charmouth.
If you ever go there, best to walk at least half a mile Eastwards away from the crowds, clutching their rock hammers.
Once your eyes are tuned in Bellemites can be found on the shoreline and Ammenites are a plenty on the cliff side of the beach.

This chunk came out of a cliff fall and caught my eye, visually rather than physically.

Measurements are approx 5" x 4" x 3".
For some reason reminds me of vertebrae and seems to be one piece rather than several stones moulded together.
Any ideas appreciated.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.

Nice find Dave , been watching some of the you tube channels with Whitby being a mecca for ammonites etc . We have the Hunstanton coastline close to us and that is also a big fossil area as well as most of the Norfolk coastline . Shall be keeping my eyes peeled when we next get a chance to go there , good chance of shark teeth etc .
