I'm thinking it was a good buy but wanted to see what you guys thought. It cost me £10 for the lot the guy told me what type of woods they were but a bit quick for me to take in, nice chap said there was about £30 worth, it's not I don't believe him but just want a second opinion. I'm sure I can make enough to easily compensate my £10 :). Pics attached.

difficult to identify without closer views (and possibly clean-up of the surface a bit), but unless they are totally cr** softwood, which they don't look like, they're a bargain at the price paid.

I'm thinking you got a bargain, the lump on the right could have cost you that elsewhere.

The last one could be Utile, What you going to use it for?
I think your bang on right with that by the way because I asked the chap what do they do with all the wood and he said most if it is sold to make coffins with. I googled utile and a coffin came up in the images section :).
