    Kate,

     

    The upper ones are ironstone concretions; probably nothing fossil about them, though there is a chance there's a fossil at the core. Their concentric zoning is typical.

    I give an explanation of concretions in a couple of my posts in this topic, eg.

    - http://www.nhm.ac.uk/natureplus/message/27257

     

    The lower two: probably just chance strange patterning due to the vagaries of weathering.

    Hi Kate

    Interesting finds, I agree with Mike on the Ironstone concretions but I think the lower two could be a mineral that 'grows' and looks like a plant.

    Sorry but I have forgot what it is called.
