Hello!

Maybe they are sponges in chert/flint nodule.

I agree they appear to be flint sponges (Upper Cretaceous). An approximate location would help although they are widespread in the UK, often well away from Cretaceous exposures.

I found them near Deal in Kent.

The whiteish specimen looks to have tubeworms. :)

Yes Deal is on the Kent coast, only a few miles from the famous White Cliffs of Dover, classic flint sponge area. :)
