The little one had a play day so took the good lady to Mappleton. She found the majority of these around the clay cliffs. Looks like we have a family hobby now! We stayed within about half a mile of the slipway since the MOD were on site doing controlled explosions at the old range.
As always any help with id's would be appreciated. Although still learning all this I have tentatively id'd a few. Apologise if I have mistaken some, hopefully nothing so far out that it is embarrassing 😉

Nodule. Appears to have double concretion. The inner section has a fluted/rippled feel across the surface. Any ideas about how best to handle this would be appreciated or if any preppers fancy a go then please let me know.

No. 10 - not sure it's Dactylioceras ... but don't know what 😉

No. 11 - looks like Pseudopecten to me too, maybe P. equivalvis.

No. 16 - Cardinia sp.

No. 21 - shelly limestone I think.

No. 24 - I'm more inclined to say coral.

Thanks MFM. No.10 has a fair amount of weathering with much of the shell on the exposed edge missing. I can't discern a definitive keel line, like you would find for example on a hildoceras, on any area. I will have a go at picking some of the matrix off from other sections later when I get the time and see if it uncovers anything helpful.

No. 10 is something like Gagaticeras or Androgynoceras
