In the first batch of photos 1 is ammonite fragment.

'A' is a really cool septarian nodule. 'E' ammonite fragment.

The rest?????

In the second batch of photos:

In the first picture 'H' would an ammonite fragment. Others in the first picture are a mish mash of brachiopods fragments. 

In the second photo 'M' are ammonites, the rest are brachiopods fragments again. 

Third photo 'Y' and 'U' are concretions, I think.  I don't recognize anything in 'P', 'Y', and 'S'. I think the rest are ammonite fragments. 

Fourth photo 7 and 8 aren't fossils. The rest are ammonite, except for #11, which will require shots of ends to make ID.

For future identification posts take individual pictures of your finds from atleast 2 different angles, please provide a size reference(ruler, 1cm cube..etc). You can resize your pictures by using paint or just by simply emailing them to your self so you're able to fit as many as you can per post limitations. When using your email, you should be prompted for file %, I typically choose the lowest % usually 30%. When posting fossils like this and asking for an ID, it makes it difficult for proper inspection and identification. As to your finds, im really not familiar with your area, but we have many who are. Nice finds by the way and thanks for sharing!

Please keep the files big enough so We can see the details. If You try to fit too many pictures into one post it makes an ID harder to make. You can always add more pictures in a reply to the thread.

I usually try for something just below 1 megabytes, this will allow loading four pictures per post. (And the pictures are still big enough to see details.)
