Aurelia aurita

I agree with Chris but I'd say a Moon Jellyfish (Aurelia aurita) a little decayed. An overall purple tinge (despite you note) and remains of the sub-umbrella (maybe)

If you agree, you should add another ID.
Rose, whilst you observed this in a Coastal location it is a Marine creature. You might get more response changing Habitat to Marine and adding Coastal as a Tag. This is a potentially valuable observation, thanks.
