Years ago I collected some rock from the quarry and then mislaid them. I recently found them again and started to prep them. The first photo is a piece I have prepped. It shows its full width, and when I started to prep it, only the top part, (above the break line), of the ammo was visible.

First and last ammos could be Leioceras or similar, the third looks a bit like Tmetoceras, both Aalenian

Leioceras opalinum

Tmetoceras scissum

But I could well be wrong

Many thanks for your reply. I will take your id if no one else says different. I am assuming that the very small ammo on my second post maybe the same as the big one on my first post.
I would really like for somebody to identify the other little ammo as that has come up rather nice. The gastropod/bivalve is quite large so hope that may be identified. The long thin fossil has me totally baffled as to what it could be. I may have to see if I can clean it up more or get better pictures.
Anyway many thanks again for replying.

HI 
Can't help with the bivalve but the long thin fossil is (I think) a high-spired gastropod
