I picked up a small loose cobble from the shore at Ravenscar, Robin Hood's Bay. It could be locally derived or from the glacial till, but I'm left with this issue... The ammonite, sandwiched between two pecten like bivalves is almost completely covered. It's the bivalve that I mostly need help with.
