Sussex fishermen often collect pieces of limestone from the surrounding chalk hills, and drill holes in them so that they can be tied to nets as weights for their nets. Being a sedimentary rock, limestone is quite easy to drill through. Once these have met the end of their useful lifespan, they are often discarded on the local beaches, where people find them and wonder over the causes of the strange, smooth holes in them.
