Hi folks,

I attach four pics of a possible marine fossil from the Ringland Hills area west of Norwich.

It's roughly 6cms long, 5.5cms at its widest and roughly 2.5cms at its thickest. I found a number of other fossils - plant matter in flint, various shells and possible jet, in the same area. None of them seem native to the hillside locality. I'll will post pics of them another time. 

I would be glad to know what this find is and if anyone knows where to find info on the Ringland Hills I would be grateful for a link or two. I have looked online: all I have found is one reference on Wikipedia baldly stating that the hills are a glacial terminal moraine.

Thanks in advance for any opinions,

It looks like an eroded sponge, probably from a flint nodule which often contain sponges

I agree another fossil sponge preserved in flint.
