Hi, found this on the foreshore just as seen in the photos 
a bit like a vertebrae it's got a small well or dip in the centre
of it but doesn't show up too well on the photos, the depth of it 
is quite thin also, I'm a bit unsure what it is! Any help would be 
welcome. Thanks Julian  image.jpeg  image.jpeg  image.jpeg  image.jpeg  image.jpeg

It’s extremely crushed like a pancake but a decent size. Good find!

Liam - I think you mean 'worn' or 'eroded'

It looks like it was preserved crushed like that, probably from a shale block. It is also a little seaworn yep.
