Looks suspiciously like Rhaetian bone bed. Is there a source of Upper Triassic Penarth Group in your area?

Blue Anchor and that stretch of coast is a classic area for the Rhaetic and your rock looks typical of the local bone bed.
The bone beds down there are hard gritty calcareous sandstones with fish scales, teeth, spines (the brown one with tubercles in pics 2 & 3 looks like Nemacanthus monilifer).
