Benny, 

First, welcome to the Forum. :)

 

It's not a tooth, ... as there is no enamel present, and no real tooth morphology - blade, root, etc. 

This looks like a Concretion, to me. 

The concentric formation of the piece, and the cracked piece of "rind" , are both classic indications of a concretion. 

Neat stone, though - Keep looking. ;) 

Regards,

I agree with Tim. It has a hard, pyritic outer layer which you see in many concretions from the Upper Lias around there.
