I really do not feel I can say what I think this is, as last time I jumped in, made a mess . Okay I found this fossil about five years back in Cheshire , UK . I was walking in a field , I had my metal detector, I could see a farmer on a tractor. Having walked towards him , he put his head out of his door , shouted yes , I just pointed to the ground and to the detector. I made a sweeping motion with my detector. The farmer shouted over his tractor engine yes, do what you want. After detecting for a time, I noticed the stones looked kinda strange and started putting some in my pockets . after a short time my coat was heavy, had to get to my car , I found a few cool stones  by the road, including this one.

Some form of weathered sedimentary rock, but does not look like a fossil.

The apparent seam is likely the result of the, at one time, surface being weathered. Rock expands slightly as it becomes hydrated and oxidized.

John, 

Can't say I'm seeing any fossil here. Looks like maybe a piece of limestone or sandstone, but no fossils evident.
