Hi, thanks for allowing me to join the forum. I have two fossils (one I’m not so sure) that I found this year. The first is a find from Seaham, County Durham on Blast beach, Noses Point on 16th April 2019. Basically it was just sitting on the beach when I found it. My guess is it looks like plant stems but I’m a total novice so I could be wrong.
I’ll post the second fossil in a separate post.

Any help would be really appreciated.
Thank you

Hello and welcome to the forum. You are spot on - it's the imprint of fossil tree bark called Calamites - about 300 - 360 million years old in the Caboniferous period.
