The chalk cliff face is in a hidden part of Staxton hill woods near Scarborough! Been Fossil hunting for about 20years and never really seen anything like this before ! Really amazed as I’ve only just moved into Staxton village having moved from Whitby where I’ve been hunting previously! Any help would be greatly appreciated ! Kind regards David

Hello David and welcome to the forum. This is an Ichno (trace) fossil of part of a large burrow system of a crustacean (probably lobster). These are often filled with flint.

Thank u so much Colin that makes perfect sense to me now ! Think I was getting a little carried away with myself due to the shape and size ! But still love it and makes an excellent addition to my collection! Kindest regards David
