What kind of fossil is this?

I found this fossil on the beach in the north east of England near to Redcar.  Does anyone have an idea of what it is.

    Hi Louby

    You have found a Crinoid stem.

    Part of a Jurassic sea lilly!

    I have attached an image of one I found and polished a long time ago.

        Hi Louby

        In Whitby there are several fossil preparitors who would polish it for you and it would not be the first time I have taken something to a monumental mason for cutting and polishing depending on size.

    Hello again Louby

    I knew I had one of the sections that make up this specimen someware!

    I think it is called an Ossical.
