Fossil Vertebra ?

I found this about fifteen years ago at Chapmans Pool near Worth Matravers in Dorset.

It is about 23cm in length, limestone? and looks like a vertebra.

Any ideas what it could be?

    Hi Julia

    Interesting find, well done.

    What is it? well to me the second image looks like a vert but the rest of the images do-not add any more information to the I.D of the specimen.

    Is the matrix soft and would it wash off with a tooth brush or is it too fragile to attempt it.

            The mystery depens!

            Why not send it to the NHM and see if they can id it?

            It really is a strange specimen.
