Hi, your second set of photos looks like a horn (solitary) coral to me. Can't see enough of it to say any more I'm afraid.

Hi Ratty,
Nice to see the ripples again, shame you didn't find a trilobite.
In case you haven't seen it here's a pdf guide to the fossils to be found at W.Nest

Hi Colin ,Pete 
thanks for the feedback ,I was hoping to find a trilobite, but you know what it's like ,probably trying to hard ,but there's always another day. Although there was definite use of hammers , lots of hammer spoil piles ,it's a shame as it's a no hammer site ,and recent working on bed rock , it's definitely not natural erosion. For a inner city site it's amazing and thanks to national nature reserve, it not a housing estate.Anyway I will go back

I have the same 'attachment' markings on a Gryphaea bilobata.

Tony, I know I'm getting on a bit, but what has your last post got to do with this thread?

Hi Colin,

Pics 5,6,7 and 8 you'd suggested horn coral. Tony's suggesting it's an 'attachment mark' and posted a pic for comparison. I'm not getting involved.......

Pete.

Exactly what dirty Pete said, my example is an attachment mark (similar to the marks left by todays limpets on rocks) as remains of the outer shell remain, if you compare the photos you will understand what my post has got to do with this thread
