I found this at minster , Isle of Sheppey in Kent, I’m new to fossil collecting and am stumped as to what this is, I was thinking some kind of plant? Any help identifying would be greatly appreciated!

Hello Sophie9 and welcome to the forum. Is this Pyrite / very heavy for it's size? The bad! news first - not a plant, now for the good news - it is part of a 45 million year old starfish!
What a superb find - well spotted! Oh, I think it's a Teichaster stokesi looking at the photos on the superb sheppey fossil website http://www.sheppeyfossils.com/pages/odds_and_sods.htm

That's a superb find - they're not common.  Well done!
