Hi everybody,

Hi Ben, looks like mostly indeterminate bone with a few coprolites and phosphate nodules. seems to be a few tiny fish teeth and scales in the groundmass. Might be a bit of marine reptile rib in pic 6.  This is the stuff that usually gets left behind after someones had a smashing time.
Cheers
Pete

Thank you so much for your reply dirty Pete.
I’ve been a few times and never known what the bone bed rock looks like. I will have to pop there more often now to see if I can find anything I’m normally used to charmouth lol.

Plenty of random bits of bone bed lying around, recent rains have dislodged this big block.

Sledgehammer required I'm afraid.

Hi Ben,
Sadly nothing obvious worth trying to smash out with my normal sized hammer so left it for others to play with. It is a very good example of a complete bone bed section however and you never know what might be inside.........
