Hi please may you try and ID this strange concretion of fossils I found in a field, which is close by to Wappenbury woods(which is a beautiful wood), whilst on a walk. The first two pictures are of the area on the rock where the fossils are and the close ups are the specific fossil I would like to be identified. I would also like an age put to this fossil if possible. The final pictures of it are just to help with the age.

Hi

A geological map will give you a clue to the age, other than that i have no idea, I do not recognise anything, when taking close up pics try to include s scale/ruler, it really helps

The bed rock is Triassic, totally non-marine. I think this is an erratic, either glacial or human transported. The main fossil seems to be a simple rugose coral and there are also crinoid and probable bryozoan fragments. It could be Silurian, I've not seen any Carboniferous stuff like that.

Cool I thought it could be a coral, however the other fossil (the little spiky thing) is still unknown, by any chance can someone identify that one please. 🦖

Here is the geological map of the area. And here is the google earth picture.
