hi, while out with my 7 year old grand son i have found fossils in a shale bed on the hills local to me. they are mainly shells that look like they settled in mud, but there are one or two bullet shape fossils. can any one give me a hint to what they are, i will sort photos out if required.

being a total amateur i am not sure if they are of any interest to any one that is serious about fossils. the area is on eston hills near Middlesbrough. they are in the side walls of a path cut through a mound that was used during the iron mining period of these hills. it is mainly shale in different layers, one seems to have lots of these fossils in it.

Your bullet shaped fossils are probably belemnites, but it would be helpful and nice to see some photos. Of course anything fossiliferous is of interest to us here. Maybe someone from your area can give you tips, or maybe you've discovered an interesting new site. Who knows.
