Found this at Charmouth in the spring, underneath Golden Cap (a venture not recommended without sturdy boots... hindsight is an exact science ) Could just be a strange erosion or manmade, but thought had better check before consigning it to the rockery. Top, bottom and side (with fingers attached for sizing) views. Any thoughts anyone please?
I see no-one's had a chance to reply to your post yet. I'm afraid I don't know much about identifying fossils, but until someone can identify your specimen, you might want to take a look at http://www.nhm.ac.uk/jdsml/nature-online/earthlab/ to see if you can find an answer there.
If you're interested in British fossils generally, you may wish to check out the Earth Lab gallery in the Red Zone of the museum.
Hopefully someone will be along to identify your specimen soon!
I'm afriad it does look like just a rock which has eroded in this shape, which I guess would consign it to the rockery?

Looks like some interesting fossils in the background though! Some belemnites and other bits and pieces - would you like to know more about any of them?
what a shame, it was so intriguing but far too good to be true! it will make an excellent addition to the rockery...
yes, actually, i've got a few other, more likely, things we found too. i will take some better pics of them and post them up. thanks.
