Found this a few years ago in woodlands at Ironbridge in Telford, it's domed and quite heavy. Any help would be much appreciated as I don't know much about fossils.

It looks like a coral called heliolites from the wenlock limestone

Hello and welcome to the forum. Yes, this is a tabulate coral, and a nice size as well, but I cannot see the coralites (cell structure) to say any more - Tarquin may be able to tell you more.

I agree with Gary and Colin, Heliolites.
