Found this in a nodule at Ruswick bay. It was in one piece but I ended up falling and it broke in two [frown]
Some of it chipped off and I couldn't find the missing piece. The fossil ends at the broken fragment, but looks like it would have continued out of the nodule from the larger fragment.
Any ideas on what it is?

It is a belemnite phragmocone.

I had no idea that they grew so large, you always just find tiny ones all over the place. Thanks for the replies 😉

Phragmocone fits onto the Rostrum or guard. I think you mean lots of little ones being the Guards. Sometimes you find guard and bit of phrag attached but cones are usually squashed.
Phragmocones are not as common finds as the guards. Plenty of info on Belemnites on line showing how it all fit together.

Good one!
