Identify mollusc fossil from Tamworth?

I had this fossil brought to me recently.


It was found on the surface at the Middleton Lakes nature reserve, south of Tamworth, Staffs, a former aggregate quarry. It appears to be a mollusc shell, having a mother-of-pearl lustre over its surface,  It could be out of situ and not from the underlying strata, which isn't very helpful, I know.


I would be grateful for even a general identification. It has me baffled.
