Sorry to say it looks like flint. Flint pretends to be a lot of different things. If you do an internet search for fossil teeth then look at the images you will see the difference. Teeth are unmistakable. __________________ JW Never ask a star fish for directions

Hello and welcome to the forum.
I am 99% certain that this is not a tooth but a flint from the chalk. If you give it a good scrub and test it by trying to scratch it with something steel and take a photo of the wider end (cross section) this will confirm it for me. The whole of the area was sea in the Cretaceous period - I have checked the geology for you. __________________ Colin Huller
