Hello and welcome to the forum. I have seen a partial belemnite over 150mm diameter from the Oxford clay!

It's probably a Megateuthis sp.  - Inferior Oolite species can get up to more than 30cm in the UK, and much larger (60cm+) from Germany. (Wikipedia's 46cm is wrong on this.)
(And I think Colin means Oxford Clay belemnites over150mm length, not diameter!)

No, saw it  with my own eyes at Warboys brick pit Cambs. (I didn't have a ruler or tape with me) but at first I thought it was a land drain!.
