I found what looks to be a few small Ammonite at Todmorden Moor. If possible, is anyone able to ID? The photos aren't great but best I could do with what I have. DSC_0025-1.jpg  DSC_0027.jpg  DSC_0029.jpg

Hello and welcome to the forum. Firstly, Todmorden Moor, West Yorkshire, is not an area I know, but consulting a geologcal map, the whole area around the moor is of Carboniferous age, 300 - 360 million years old, welll before ammonites evolved. During this period, the area was being covered by seas, thenland. Assuming this is from the bedrock (there is no superficial (glacial) deposits around there).it is either a worm tube or a small gastropos - sea snail.

Pete, that looks more gastropd than goniatite! But as I said, I don't know much about the Carb!

That was my first thought too Colin until I saw the pdf, Gastrioceras is quite common from there apparently.
