Hi
Firstly on where to go take a look at Locations on this site.

When taking photos please include a ruler or scale plus the location where found, it really helps with the ID.

The bottom photo is a partial ammonite, someone may be able to narrow it down
The next one up on the left is a coral and on the right an echinoid. Again experts should be able to give you the species.
The others in the top photo are Gryphea or Devils toe nails.

Again please supply where you picked them up from and you should get good Id's.

Well done

There used to be lots of places in the South Cave/Newbald area where you could collect good specimens but I fear all those quarries are either filled in or fenced off and/or SSSIs. But you might be able to get up the Drewton-Weedley rail cutting and see if there's anything there still.

The Holderness coast is of course a never-ending source of stuff as it washes out of the boulder clay. You might even catch an exposure of the Dimlington shell beds! Futher north there's Speeton and the chance, if lucky, of good ammonites.

And hook up with the Hull Geological Society - they'll know what's still available locally. They have a good program of lectures and they run field trips in the warmer months!
