Sorry to tell you but I don't think it is a footprint as the lower greensand is a marine deposit and would not contain dinosaur footprints. There are many burrows depressions and I think you have by coincidence three together that look like a footprint.

There have been reported dinosaur footprints from the Lower Greensand of Folkestone, although I believe they are not universally accepted. It is suggested dinosaurs may have walked a foreshore at low tide and left the prints. Philip Hadland's 'Fossils of Folkestone,Kent' shows a number of convincing examples.

There was a discussion about the alleged footprints but having seen true prints at Hastings I am very dubious about the greensand prints. The water was too deep!

Did you make the cast in plaster ,?

IMHO, the two external "fingers" seem to coincide with fractures in the rock, so I would tend to agree with Gary W:

Wow, I would have taken a plaster of it also. It is all about what you see and how it affects you as you  are not selling it to others, it is your story to tell. Appreciate others input, but no one knows for sure. It has a story to tell all its own. I see you put a lot of work into it. Thank you for posting!

Cracks often coincide with features of trace fossils. Check out my book for more proof of dinosaur tracks at Folkestone. Or more coincidences.

Or see this article on a footprint found by a third person https://folkestonemuseum.co.uk/press-release/rare-dinosaur-footprint-found-in-folkestone-kent/
