Precise location not known. All the others are various views of 7 different fossils from the Bath area. If any one can identify I would greatly appreciate. Sorry for lack of ruler or poor quality. Due to Corona Virus not able to access my usual.

I think therefore I am. I doubt so maybe not. I have split personality so one of us is right.

The ammonite might be Parkinsonia (does it have a rather smooth band around the venter?)  If so, it is Middle Jurassic (Bajocian).  But from Burry Port in Camarthenshire???  If so, it must have been brought in and lost there as there is no Middle Jurassic cropping out anywhere in this area.  Is there another Bury Port?
The bivalves - I'd suggest Pleuromya, Protocardia and Pholadomya.
The brachiopods are all Terebratulids and apart from mentioning that they look a bit like like Obovothyris, which would be found in the Abbotsbury Cornbrash Formation (Bathonian), consistent with all the others, they differ little from any other Middle Jurassic limestone fauna.  Another DiscussFossils correspondent might provide a more authoritative identification.  At least this is a start.

nice! Are you not able to post a proper, universal scale? A tape measure for example.
Cheers, Bill
