Got this specimen back from North Yorkshire moors from when I was like 11 in 80s on a dog walk.
Found this in a dich sticking out that curt my eye and got interested in it cos of all Fossils on top and bottom of stone.

All I know is that North Yorkshire use to be under water in Jurassic times and over time,
Land got pushed up to how it is today.

Anyone know what Fossil is with rings, Cant find any info on net or help with it in past ?

Definitely some sort of Echinoderm and likely crinoid as Stephan has suggested.
