Looks like a brachiopod. Lucky to find an outcrop, I have heard of swatara but also heard it was paved over.

It may have been. Found this about 7-8 years ago

That makes sense, good thing you got one before then! Sorry I can't help with genus or species, all the Brachiopods (except for spiriferids and spiny ones) kind of mesh together in my head, but maybe someone else will.

It could also be a bivalve. Hard to tell as there's no sculpture to be seen.
