I have a feeling that this is a section of an ammonite also known as ammonite chambers. However this has been weathered slightly so I am not sure.

Hello and welcome to the forum. 'Unregistered' is quite correct, this is a single chamber of an ammonite, probably of Jurassic age. These are sometimes referred to as 'cat's paws' due to their shape.

Wow Thankyou very much for the identification. It’s way older than we were expecting and much more excting. My daughter has already been googling it and finding out about the chambers. I really appreciate your help and expertise
Thankyou
