I was just wondering if anyone knew what this fossil is. It was found on the river seven in Bristol UK. If you need anymore photos I can post them, just ask.

Many thanks,

Joshua Richmond.

Looks pretty rocky to me.

Cross bedding perhaps ? With subsequent cracks due to settling being filled with more mobile (soluble) minerals.

I agree.  It is interesting looking but is layers of rock, probably originally sediments, not a fossil.

The others are probably right, but could you post other views just to be sure - especially the ends?

The wavy cream colored object is not a fossil (chert?). However, there appears to be tiny shells in the attached matrix. :)
