Can't be positive about ID, it looks like a Horned type, take a look at www.picsearch.com/pictures/spiders , you may find what you're looking for there.......Good luck

Another suggestion, go to eurospiders.com and send a photo to Stefan, if any one can ID it he's the most likely person, again good luck.

Thanks Jacko!
I have contacted Stefan and he rather promptly came back informing me it is a form of Orb Weaver.
He thinks a Araneus angulatus Should that mean anything to anyone? lol

Orb Weaver is fine by me :-p

Many Thanks
