I always get stuck in the mud at that place....I'm not convinced it's bone and it seems to have a thin outer layer (shell?), ribs/ornamentation and a curve on it, Could it just be a fragment of bivalve shell?

Haha yes the mud is usually quite bad, I’m only just learning so no idea if it’s bone, I will try and expose more and have a really close look to see if I can tell if it’s shell
thanks for the reply 👍

Hi Steve, just been looking through the posts, and when i saw the first  your pics i thought shark fin spine. I'm sure somebody more knowledgable will confirm or rule out my hunch. Have you got any further with exposing some more of it?

Hey, thanks for replying 
I am planning on trying to expose more tomorrow so will post another picture 
I did go back again and noticed a big she’ll that seemed the same texture, hopefully exposing more will shed some light 👍
