Is this a fossil?

Hello we found this on Bournemouth beach.  It doesn't look like an ammonite, is it another type of fossilised shell?

    Hi Peter and Dan

    Very well done and a great find!

    I would say by the look of your good image's you have found an internal cast / negative of were an ammonite has been.

    Because you found your specimen on a beach were there is a lot of energy with the waves crashing onto the shore it has been broken, so next time you go fossiling have a look for the rest of it!
