Hello,
I found this fossil near the top of Pen Cerrig-calch in the Black Mountains of Wales. I'd really appreciate any thoughts about what it is. I know there is no scale, but I came across it unexpectedly. The rock is about 40cm across, and you can judge the scale a little by the heather, bilberry and bearberry surrounding it. I'm a modern day botanist, but this looks like a tree from a previous geological period. P1040409b.jpg  P1040410b.jpg

Hi Brok,
That looks like a section of poorly preserved Lepidodendron trunk. There's an outcrop of the Carboniferous Millstone grit (Namurian) near the summit so is probably associated with that.
