Merry belated Christmas

Found this at Lavernock yesterday. It looks interesting - has anyone any idea what it could be ?

Thanks

Hi Arthur1, welcome to the forum.

I don't think this is natural, it looks like a man made industrial slag.

Thanks

On second look I think you might be correct - although it is a very “rock like “ in weight and appearance. I was hoping the regular edges might have some vertebrae or such like underneath

Never mind , it’s a learning experience !

Thanks Arthur.
I don't know which industry produces this slag, but its use in car parks etc. is widespread here in Yorkshire. It is often very attractive, showing blue, green and yellow banding.
Keep on searching, you never know what you might find!
