Bobo the bear
Found this just off the Brig at Filey. The Brig is Jurassic but this could be an erratic from the eroding glacial cliff deposits.
I always find something weird when I visit Filey and this is no exception. 
The small balls are each 2.5 cm in diameter and a slight ridge is suggested halfway across one of them but just may be how it's weathered. It is so uniform I thought it could be man-made.
Any Ideas would be welcome.

I would look at it but there are no photos! (Don't forget scale and all aspects)

Hi Bobo,
Assume these are three spherical concretions that have grown and merged/coalesced to form a model of a tritium nucleus.

Looks like a piece from the Permian Concretionary Limestone which is full of them, of many sizes. This outcrops on the Durham coast and inland - it often turns up as erratics.

Well thanks Guys...really helpful. It just looked so regularly shaped it could have been man-made. Done a bit of looking on the web and seen the concretions in Oregon containing crabs....wow. I won't try opening these up though. Probably started off as a grain of sand.
