Hello Keith, I used to work with someone from the village - quite posh (then) from what I remember! Anyway, I think your first set of photos are of an encrusting Bryozzoan, but it is very eroded, and these things need microscopic detail, but they are very beautiful! The second set, to me looks like the 'ghost' of mdern plant filaments whch have infiltrated between cracks in the chalk (grey chalk subgroup,  (Cenomanian ~90 myo).

Agree with Colin about the leaf but feel the first specimen is a sponge?
