Cheers to Gasman and Uncle Bob for suggestions.  Those are the best yet and I think you might be right on the money.

Found this, could it be part of an old stonemason's hammer?

I’d agree with UncleBob and say it’s one of these:

More examples on google with search for ‘box iron slug’.
You can see the heat damage going by your pic.
Hope this helps :)

Now that is an excellent suggestion. Apologies to Uncle Bob as I have difficulty understanding things and he was prob first with the answer.

Many thanks all.
