Answered - Can You Identify this Fossil (if it is One!)

My daughter found this today in the gravel by the side of our drive.  We live in Whitchurch, Shropshire, though obviously the gravel could have been quarried anywhere!

 

Is it a fossil or just a rock structure, and can anyone tell me what is actually is?

 

The central core that seems to run through the piece is off-white and smooth, the outside of it is made up of regular parallel ribs, with part of it covered in a smooth stone outer 'shell' about 1mm thick.

 

Thanks is advance for any help!

 

Neil
