A stony baguette and two other mysteries

Hey everyone! I was wondering if you could please help me identify these items and whether they are worth keeping! I found these three today at Beaumaris.
 
The first one (pictures 1 + 2) appears to be some odd, fortuitous weathering of sandstone?
 
In the second (picture 2) it seems that there may be some possible gastropod remains in there? 
 
The third item - the baguette! (pictures 3 + 4) It caught my interest due to the ridges on the top and flat base. I assume it's likely an sandstone concretion? It feels like rock on the outside and isn't as heavy as ironstone.
 
Thanks in advance for any help!

The second piece looks like some bone in matrix with a small gastropod cross section.

The second piece does appear to be some sort of bone in matrix (Most likely Cetacean). The third piece looks to be some sort of ironstone concretion which are quite common at Beaumaris. The ironstone concretion might be a burrow but I am not 100% sure.

 

Hope this helps,

Dan
