It’s definitely not a meteorite. Looks to be made of some sort of sand/gritstone.Posted 4 days ago
Something Lovecraftian, I reckon…Posted 4 days ago

Fossilised dinosaur poo, probably brontosaurus – definitely not T Rex as that’s more of a glam rock.Posted 4 days ago

Can you get a freshly cut sample?
If not tell people it’s cummingtonite.
Edit: Whilst it looks like it has bedding and jointing along the top, i’m with crikey until I see an unweathered sample.Posted 4 days ago

Those planes you can see look like sedimentary layering so, yeah, looks like a concretion in a clastic sedimentary rock (sandstone/siltstone).
You could smash it up and see if there is something interesting in the middle as they tend to form around bits of fossilised organic matter, but prepared to be disappointed.
I don’t think its worth much this side of Camden Market!Posted 4 days ago
Nice rock! I asked a proper Geologist…it’s a nodule. Very common in mudstones, though not always as spherical as this. Made of calcite (CaCO3)Posted 4 days ago
I was going to suggest you joined UK Climbing and asked on there because they have a wide range of contributors.Posted 4 days ago

Saw in half and polish the cut faces.
Might be something inside, but if not you’ve two pieces for the rice of one can be set as a book match to frame something in the garden, or each side of the entryway.Posted 3 days ago
Theres quite a lot of cut examples in images.
