I didn't take this photo, so I'm not 100% sure of the scale, but I think it's a few inches across. It's from Hele Bay in North Devon, which is in rocks of Devonian age. It's probably a coral, but I'm not absolutely sure ...

Don't know, the photo is all I have to go on. However the location is "well known" for Devonian corals.

That might be a bryozoan, possibly fenestrellina.  Compare it with a section of my New Mexico Pennsylvanian fossil collection.
