Hi Sid,
From my 'A Guide to House and Garden Spiders' chart it looks like Araneus quadratus, which is one of the orb web spiders. The females are approx 12mm but can go up to 15mm. Googling the latin name brings up the British Arachnological Society page on it which offers more details (link wouldn't upload).
Thanks
Clare

I think this is the Square-Spot Rustic Moth they are about 32-36mm long They over winter as a larva before they form a cocoon just under soil or moss until they emerge in mid July.

Hi Sid
I think it might be the large jawed orb web spider (Tetragnatha montana) but this is just a guess based on my spider chart and quixk google for other images. Google this species and see what you think.

Yes I've looked and I'd go along with what you say...Long-jawed Orb-weaver Spiders, sometimes called Common Stretch Spiders spin an orb web to catch their prey. They're usually found in vegetation close to ground level and frequently close to water. The elongated body can vary in colour from creamy-yellow to green or pale brown. The legs are a yellow-brown colour.
