Can anybody confirm this is a ammonite from around mid Jurrasic times?any Idea of approximate value?

Hi I found this at a bottom of a cave I found in Lincolnshire last summer, It was just laying there at the bottom of the cave( about 15-18 meters underground) I might have even been the first person down there as the entry is just a hole in the ground in the middle of the woods which I stumbled accross by accident and having heard the noise of water falling comming from deep in the hole I decided to get my rock climbing equipment and go exploring, below is a picture of my reward mesuerments of the face are about 25 cm height, 30 cm wide and the rock is about 20-25 cm deep depending on the part some of the sections of the bottom part are filled with a milky crystal that if you put a torch to from the bottom it will actually slighly shine through and its quite heavy, just wandering if anyone could shed some light about what it is and abouts its value, from what i gathered and managed to find on the internet i think its a ammonites but i don't have a clue on the subject, so looking for some confirmation, any questions about the piece or the cave I'll be happy to answer if the weather keeps I'm planning to go there again within the next couple of weeks so might be able to post a video of the cave(forgot batteries last time ) or if somebody wants to join under there own responsibility ( I am as far from being a proffesional as possible, and quite often have been refered by others as reckless and dangerous ) your welcome
