Found this whilst walking along the prom adjacent to Seaham beach in Durham today. Seas have been really rough & lots of rocks were strewn across the path. This really caught my eye. 
I will be so delighted if it is identified as a fossil (even if it is very feint). 
Should I try to break the rest of the rock open to see if anything else may be hidden? 
Thank you

Looks like a limemud/dolomitic cobble. The 'fossil' is probably a physical/chemical variation within the rock rather than an ex animal. 
Keep looking.

Looks more like a geological rock formation than a fossil
