beach find - Marske, North Yorkshire

Hi there,

 

Can anyone identify this for me, please? I found it on the beach at Marske, North Yorkshire a couple of days ago. I'm relatively new to this - I can spot gryphea and corals, but I've not found anything like this before and have no idea what it is. Is it a fossil, or some kind of rock, do you think?

 

Thank you!

    Hi - this is a very worn solitary coral, probably Carboniferous about 325 my. 

     

    It was probably transported by glaciers in the Ice Ages.  The Jurassic strata have an extensive cover of Superficial Deposits
