Recently visited the Robin Hoods Bay Area of the Yorkshire coast and found many fossils such as belemnites and shells but found this and didn’t specifically Know what it was. It looked to me to be a type of plant or coral but wanted someone else’s opinion. Any help would be much appreciated

Welcome to the forum. I'm pretty sure it's a specimen of the trace fossil, Rhizocorallium. If complete, the two arms would join in a U at one end. Some beds at Robin Hoods Bay are covered with it.

Thank you, will look into it. I can provide measurements and scale tomorrow if necessary. Thank you also for the welcome, I’m eager to learn and I’ve loved fossils since I was young, this site will be very helpful for me!
