Hello Tracey, I don't think this is a fossil, but a type of 'fibrous' Calcite which formes within the nodule, known locally as 'Beef'.

I agree that it isn't a fossil, but to me it looks more like chert from the Upper Greensand formation rather than shales-with-beef, as Colin suggests

I agree with Vert Finder, it looks like the chert from the Upper Greensand. 

(For "beef" see this, from the NHM site  http://www.nhm.ac.uk/natureplus/thread/26285
