Another sea urchin preserved in flint
Probably Echinocorys
Along  with sponges these are described (in books) as quite common in flint gravel, beaches etc. In real life I am always surprised and pleased to find one!

Hello Elizabeth, Richard is correct that it it's probabbly part of a sea urchin, but Echinocorys are probably the largest of our British Echinoderms, so I really wouldn't like to say any more.
