Hello, these are sharkteeth of an ancient shark species called Hybodus sp. If you google Hybodus-> images, you`ll see...

greets, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

Very nice find GH, this will be from the Westbury formation (Triassic/Rhaetian) which is present at Sedbury. According to Fossils of the Rhaetian Penarth Group (1999) that's Hybodus cloacinus.  However this paper, which is a sure fire cure for insomnia, https://www.foss-rec.net/6/147/2003/fr-6-147-2003.pdf names it as Polyacrodus cuspidatus.
