Hi, found these at Lavernock point. Bone or wood maybe?

Hello Ceri, the 1st photo looks belemnitish, as does the last, but I'm not sure - could you post a photo of the cross section nearest your thumb? 2 & 3 look like wood and 4????? need closer photos. Oh, and please use a ruler in all photos!

1&3 could be compressed bone or wood (can't be sure from the photos).

2&4 look like a section of crinoid stem.

I think the first and  third photos are wood or plant material which are both fairly common there and the rod like piece looks to be a burrow infill, I have never seen belemnites from that location and crinoid from there tends to be  star shaped.

It's always great to "shoot" your own

Without implying that the pictures enquired about are belemnites, I did once find a possible belemnite at Lavernock. If it is, it is the rubbishest, most beaten-up belemnite ever! Else it may be an infill of some type. It is too weathered to see the radiating crystalline structure you’d usually see in a guard.

If you don't look, you won't find.

1 and 2 are the same fossil, as are 2 and 4. That's me done.
