Hi I found this section of what I think are coral fossils embedded in the conglomerate at Fraisthorpe.  It was heading North towards Auburn Sands halfway between the slipway and the pill boxes.  I have used my car key as a scale as I didn't have my ruler with me on the day.  I have also show it close up from two different directions.
Thanks for any help with a better ID.  I am a total novice. 20170823_163748.jpg  20170823_163756 (2).jpg  20170823_163800 (2).jpg

Hello again, this looks to me like a Carboniferous coral called Siphonodendron. It was probably deposited by a glacier from North of where you found it as the bedrock is Cretaceous.

Thanks Colin, this was too embedded to bring home, but it was so lovely I had to photograph it.
