This is the second fossil (hopefully it’s a fossil) that I found while digging in my front garden. I live in New Brancepeth, County Durham on an old farm. I found this about a month ago; March 2019.
My guess was it’s a print of a horses hoof. But I worry in case it’s a carving, but I can’t find any marks to suggest so. Either way I’ll keep it. Xx
Thank you

Hello, i do not think this is a fossil; looks like a sandstone concretion that has been whacked with a chisel...

greets, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...
