Can anyone identify this spider please, it is in my garden above my boiler flue?
Whereabouts do you live?
It's hard to say from these pics, but I'd say one of the Steatoda species (false widows) is a good candidate. I can't tell whether S. grossa or S. nobilis, but if you are in the UK, this is much more likely than a Lactrodectus (black widow).
Do you have any more pics?
