Hi all,
Out in the field today and came across this large stone. Large stones/ pebbles are not unusual on these fields, it glacial being in the Avon valley.
This stone is different and has some holes in it. Looks like they been drilled.
Do you think this could be natural or something man Made. If man made, what could it have been used for?

Thanks for looking

It's a fossil mate. Either of mollusc borings or a fossil coral. :thumbsup:

Or, more likely, a piece of sandstone that had pebbles in it that have dropped out.
‘Odd’ things like that are intriguing. I’ve got bits and pieces all over the place that I’ve picked up on my travels.

I would lean more towards a fossil coral than mollusc borings.. Here's a similar example. :thumbsup:
