In the Canterbury Kent area if that’s what you mean? Sorry new to this, this is our first fossil found. It was also found in a hop field in a bit of flint.

Very nice flint sea urchin. Echinocorys maybe...

Hello Reevo, I would need more photos to be sure (side views, and base at least and please include a scale (a ruler is best) in all photos, but I suspect this is one of the Conulus genus. It is preserved in flint and so will be an internal cast of the shell. (70 - 85 million years old)

Classic filint preserved conulus echinoid, did you keep the flint it is quite nice to display reassembled so that it can be opened to reveal the urchin i side.

Hi Reevo

Must be about as pretty as an Echinoid comes.
