Flint ( burrow ) Nodule

I found this recently how and why it was among the magnetic whinstone i am studying at the moment i have no idea.
And i state now it was not excavated from the Stainton gravel beds !

The nodule has a rough outer texture but has razor sharp edges!

I am told these burrow nodules usually contain fossils but flint is new to me , and at the moment i don't quite know what to look for !?

I think its a beautiful piece almost alien in appearance.

Septarian Nodule dug from the Stainton gravel beds...
