That is a Brachiopod from the Carboniferous Limestone so something about 350 million years old. Others who are more familiar with these fossils may be able to give you a more specific identification.

Oooh thanks for your responses that's quite exciting I hope you're right. Also forgot to mention on the matrix it has Itty bitty bits of flat silver metal that I notice when they catch the light

Dictyoclostus semireticulatus (Productus semireticulatus) might be another possibility.
Your shiny metal could be galena, PbS.

I have it a slight wash and the shiny bits no longer look like metal but possibly quartz. Is this likely?

The rock is carboniferous limestone so reckon it's more likely to be small reflective calcite crystal facets.
