Hi
It looks like a piece of flint that has broken open to expose a fossil sponge inside

Hello and welcome to the forum. Richard is quite right, it is a part of a sponge in a flint nodule and will be around 80 - 85 million years old, eroded fro the chalk cliffs and transported to Charmouth. I'm afraid there isn't enough of it to give you a genus / species, but it's a nice find.
