So this was given to me years ago by a miner when i was getting an underground tour at the national coal mining museum in yorkshire. 

 

Can anyone tell me if it's actually a fossil?

Yes, they are fossils. I think they are non-marine bivalves such as Carbonicola or Anthraconaia.

Beds of these occur intermittently throughout the Coal Measures.

Great, thanks for telling me :)
