Hello and welcome to the forum. I think this is a  rugose coral, and will  be Carboniferous in age (300million years old ). Better photos taken in natural overcast light, a little  closer and a ruler in all photos might help.

Thanks a lot are you happy with you're assessment or do you need better pics to be certain, only asking because I'm a total beginner but it's something the kids are really interested in.

Sorry, yes. Please also take from as many angles as you can and as above (end(s) are very important  especially broken ones!
