Ooh, the shells are gryphea, a common fossil in the Jurassic strata, which includes the iron stone layer
Yes I noticed them, have picked a few in my time from here and there: some where on the Severn, Aust maybe, is a hotspot for them but I've not visited it m'self.
I was sure Lyme Regis - though not a County had ammonites - for obvious reasons, but a quick check says nope nor Dorset neither; and that somewhere else had trilobites in their 'Dudley Locust' role: so maybe Dudley :)

ETA And Whitby too! Prob got some dactyloceras on it.

The Dudley locusts are trilobites, but they're Silurian, a lot older. The Jurassic goes from Lyme Regis up to Whitby, so the same fossils there all the way up the country. Yes, I think the Whitby flag has ammonites on it
