Hi, I found this on the surface of a field near Salisbury. Can anyone help me identify it? Thanks.

Hmm interesting find but I'm not 100% sure it's bone. It looks like it's made of the same material as the surrounding rock and I can't see any surface texture in the photos that would normally indicate that it's bone. My guess would be some kind of trace fossil or burrow that's been infilled with sediment - preserving the shape of the burrow. I'd be interested to know what other people think though!

I agree with Chalkers, a burrow cast.
