Can you help with identifying these “clams” . Each one is just over 1cm diameter
I’m not sure where they’re from - which doesn’t help ! Can anyone guess a possible location ?
Many thanks

Hi 
I think these are the brachiopod Stiphrothyris tumida - the matrix looks like Inferior Oolite. Possibly from Gloucestershire

They are common in the Clypeus Grit formation of the Upper Inferior Oolite of the Cotswolds.
