This is a partial bivalve, and looks to be of the genus Gryphaea

Oh wow, I am just pleased it is something and not just a random shaped rock. Thank you very much and I’m sure my 5yr old will be pleased to know and keep.👍🏻

These bivalves are actually Exogyra latissima, from the Speeton Clay Formation which only crops out in England at the coast south of Reighton, to about the point at which the path alongside Speeton Beck ascends the cliff.  This bivalve, a type of oyster, was living during the Early Cretaceous, about 130 million years ago during a period of time known as the Hauterivian Stage.  The Speeton Clay and its marine equivalents, were deposited at the bottom of a sea which stretched across what is now the North Sea into Northern Europe and Russia and for this reason, a lot of the fossils in the formation bear Russian names.  The age-equivalent strata in Southern England (Wealden) are all more or less continental, land-derived sediments, like river sand and mud, in which dinosaurs and early mammals are sometimes found.
