You've found what is called a horn coral. Nice!

Thank you for the reply, the prominent area of banding led me to think something with a segmented body and lots of legs, curled round, but the overall shape and side banding seems to be consistent with the images I've just pulled up on horn corals. Think you could be right!

This will be from the Carboniferous period ~300 + million years old.

Wow incredible, how would someone go about revealing more / all of it from the surrounding rock?

Assuming this is Carboniferous limestone, the easiest and quickest way is to use air tools (air pen and air abrader).
