Spider identification request

Hi

I photographed this spider a couple of weeks ago on our shed door in Surrey. The whole circumference larger than the palm of my hand. Does anyone know what it is please?Photo0742.jpg

    Hi Birdie,

     

    I'm not sure what this is. I saw this post a couple of days ago and have been keeping an eye on it. I'm concerned that with the high volume of ID requests on this forum recently, there is a risk of this post slipping down the list and into obscurity.

     

    This has the potential to be far most interesting than most recent posts that just seem to be differentiating between Zygiellas and Steatodas...

    I noticed this too when it was posted and assumed it's a Tegenaria species (house spider), but it isn't strongly marked for some reason, and so I wasn't sure. Maybe it's covered in dust? Or maybe my computer screen isn't up to the job. Anyway, in shape it's like a Tegenaria.
