    This is an Amaurobius spp. A. similis or A. ferox. They are able to bite if held in a clenched hand, but are otherwise harmless - the group (Amaurobiidae ) are known as Lace Web spiders on account if their lace-like webs that can be seen amongst the clutter round the garden, on fence panels and on sheds.
