Post some pictures of it, together with a full description of it, such things as weight, composition appearance( as in it looks like ...........), if you have one, check whether it reacts to a magnet, and so on.

What depth was it found at ? Is it a bluish grey, and very dense ?

You are in one of the U.Ks better meteorite grounding areas.

Nope that didn't work. To attach a pic, save it in your own doc section of your PC/Laptop then resize to below 1mb, then when posting click on add attachment, browse your Docs, open the pic file which will then add to your post and then post as normal, if all is OK your Pic will appear with your post.

If it was a meteorite it would give a real earbender of a signal.
