Hello Tom and welcome to the forum. This is the imprint of a small ammonite Sorry, but I can't say any more with such a small piece.

Based upon what I can see of this tiny fragment of ammonite venter, it should belong to the genus Aulacostephanus, or a close relative such as Aulacostephanoides, which are characteristic of the upper part of the Lower Kimmeridge Clay.  You don't tell us from which Kimmeridge Clay exposure ...?
