Hi, I picked up a rock with numerous fossils in on the beach at Burton Bradstock.
Can anyone tell me what this one is.

Hello and welcome to the forum. Are these photos of the 'rock' or are they different bits of of it broken up? Where did you find it - in the car park, on the beach...? To me it looks like a chip and cannot see much detail.

Closer and clearer image of the last photo needed. It looks like a fragment of something but not enough detail.

Hi, thanks for reply’s.
The piece of rock was picked up off the beach, near a rock fall and I assume it was a piece of Inferior Oolite.
I’ve smashed it up and this is a small piece from it. I’ll try add a better picture when I get home.
Thanks again

The picture is a little unclear, but this looks quite a lot like a belemnite or nautilus beak to me.

Google Rhynchoteuthis.
