each block measures 8”
Ive been informed both blocks of ammonites are Psiloceras.
but other than that know nothing else.
I didn’t even know ammonites were found there. 

thanks for looking

They are magnificent and beautifully prepared.
Psiloceras is noteworthy in being the first ammonite that appears from earlier, Triassic, stock and its lowest occurrence is normally taken as the beginning of the Jurassic in a stratigraphical sequence.

Lots of Psiloceras sp. at Blue Anchor Bay in Somerset, but there they're usually (always?) compressed.
